520    Many know the story of Jackie Robinson integrating major 
       league baseball in 1947. But few know that the NFL 
       integrated a year earlier, when Kenny Washington stepped 
       on the field for the Los Angeles Rams. He wasn't the only 
       one. Four men broke pro football's color line in 1946, 
       Kenny Washington and Woody Strode with the Los Angeles 
       Rams and Bill Willis and Marion Motley with the Cleveland 
       Browns. Lost Champions traces this history from the early 
       1930s'when NFL owners first instituted a ban on black 
       players'through pro football's re-integration, to the 1950
       NFL Championship Game, which pitted the Rams and Browns 
       against each other in a showdown of the most prolific and 
       advanced offenses pro football had ever seen.But the 
       battle wasn't just waged on the gridiron. Lost Champions 
       shows how efforts to integrate sports sits within the 
       often-ignored history of the civil rights movement in the 
       1940s. The four players faced animosity and death threats 
       for their role in integration while they and all black 
       Americans were threatened in 1946 by a spike in lynchings,
       threat of legal expulsion from their own homes, and 
       segregation all the way down to the simple act of going to
       an amusement park for a bit of relaxation. Finally, Lost 
       Champions explains why these men and their stories have 
       for so long languished in the shadow of Jackie Robinson, 
       and why they too deserve widespread acclaim for 
       integrating what is arguably the most popular sport in 
       America.
