See Calvin Sinnette, Forbidden Fairways: African Americans and the Game of Golf (Chelsea, Mich.: Sleeping Bear Press, 1998); and John H. Kennedy, A Course of Their Own: A History of African American Golfers (Kansas City: Stark Books, 2000).

Douglas Hartmann, “The Politics of Race and Sport: Resistance and Domination in the 1968 African American Olympic Protest Movement, ” Ethnic and Racial Studies 19, no. 3 (July 1996): 563n1. The perception that Edwards's role in the OPHR is inflated likely stems from his controversial comments in contemporary documentaries and his work with administrative institutions that he once disdained, such as major league baseball and professional football.

Identity, Performativity, and Exile (Durham: Duke University Press, 1999); Dana Nelson, National Manhood: Capitalist Citizenship and the Imagined Fraternity of White Men (Durham: Duke University Press, 1998); Robert Rydell, All the World's a Fair: Visions of Empire at American International Expositions, 1876–1916 (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1984); and Richard Slotkin, “Buffalo Bill's 'Wild West' and the Mythologization of the American Empire, ” in Cultures of United States Imperialism, ed.
