"South Africa is a country where the sway of colonialism/coloniality is still in play. This seminal series of essays begins a process of challenging this impact on sport by sustained and exciting research. In true Thompsonian fashion it rescues a history of Black sport that would have been lost forever. As we read through the text we begin to appreciate how the values that animated Black sport influenced the fundamental aspects of our transition to democracy." Professor Ashwin Desai, University of Johannesburg
