520    From Jackie Robinson to Muhammad Ali and Arthur Ashe, 
       African American athletes have been at the center of 
       modern culture, their on-the-field heroics admired and 
       stratospheric earnings envied. But for all their money, 
       fame, and achievement, says New York Times columnist 
       William C. Rhoden, black athletes still find themselves on
       the periphery of true power in the multibillion-dollar 
       industry their talent built. Provocative and controversial,
       Rhoden's $40 Million Slaves weaves a compelling narrative 
       of black athletes in the United States, from the 
       plantation to their beginnings in nineteenth-century 
       boxing rings to the history-making accomplishments of 
       notable figures such as Jesse Owens, Althea Gibson, and 
       Willie Mays. Rhoden reveals that black athletes' 
       "evolution" has merely been a journey from literal 
       plantations'where sports were introduced as diversions to 
       quell revolutionary stirrings'to today's figurative ones, 
       in the form of collegiate and professional sports 
       programs. He details the "conveyor belt" that brings kids 
       from inner cities and small towns to big-time programs, 
       where they're cut off from their roots and exploited by 
       team owners, sports agents, and the media. He also sets 
       his sights on athletes like Michael Jordan, who he says 
       have abdicated their responsibility to the community with 
       an apathy that borders on treason. The power black 
       athletes have today is as limited as when masters forced 
       their slaves to race and fight. The primary difference is,
       today's shackles are often the athletes' own making.
