Abstract

228 Southwestern Historical Quarterly October southern institutions after World War II, and finally, the slow dismantling of segre- gation on gridirons and basketball courts of colleges and universities throughout the South, particularly in the venerable, and most stringently segregationist of these associations, the Southeast Conference (SEC). Martin’s work adeptly articu- lates the reasons why certain conferences (such as the ACC and the SWC) and individual schools (such as Vanderbilt and Texas Western) were more apt to chal- lenge athletic experimentations in the color line (both in the South, or when trav- eling to contest northern schools in important intersectional games) while others were more likely to resist (such as Ole Miss and Clemson) such efforts during this ninety-year period. It is in these chapters (four through nine) where Martin effectively contem- plates and nuances the significance of key moments in the historical timeline such as the victory by Texas Western against Kentucky in the NCAA finals in 1966, the “groundbreaking” game between “Bear” Br yant’s Alabama Crimson Tide and USC in 1970, and the hiring of Wade Houston as head coach of the University of Ten- nessee basketball program in 1989. Martin then finalizes his work by addressing the
