Synopsis

While the black experience in America has been told in many ways, it has seldom, if ever, been substantially addressed from the play, recreation, and leisure perspective. That is the primary intent of Black Recreation: A Historical Perspective. Leisure and recreation activities are an important measure of quality of life-of happiness, wealth, and health. Historical interpretation, accurately presented, can help give individuals a better sense of identity-of who they are and how far they have come. Both minority and majority readers will benefit from broad-based analysis of the recreational activities and effects they had on American culture as a whole.
