<p><span>A long-overdue tribute to legendary African American sportswriter and boxing cartoonist Ted Carroll.</span></p>
<p><span>Ted Carroll was one of the greatest American artists and sportswriters of the twentieth century, most notably as a boxing cartoonist and journalist. As a Black man working in an era when boxing was one of the few outlets where Black athletes could achieve wealth, success, and recognition, Carroll’s commentary on the sport provides a profound perspective on race and the history of boxing.</span></p>
<p><span>In </span><span>A Boxing Legacy: The Life and Works of Writer and Cartoonist Ted Carroll</span><span>, Ian Phimister and David Patrick celebrate Carroll’s extraordinary achievements as a sports cartoonist, illustrator, painter, and writer. Beginning with an introduction to Carroll’s life and times, Phimister and Patrick then dive into Carroll’s work, reproducing 44 of his best articles contributed to </span><span>The Ring </span><span>magazine—the bible of boxing. Arranged thematically, each section of articles includes an overview discussing the selections and providing valuable historical context. Included in the collection is the significant series “The American Black Man in Boxing,” which explores race, sport, and society. </span></p>
<p><span>Ted Carroll’s insightful articles illuminate the place of boxing in twentieth-century sport and society with incredible skill and care. The first extended account of Ted Carroll’s life and works, and profusely illustrated with his brilliant drawings, </span><span>A Boxing Legacy </span><span>finally provides the deserved recognition to a remarkable artist and author who has been overlooked for far too long.</span></p>
<p><span>This book is a celebration of legendary African American sports writer and boxing cartoonist Ted Carroll, whose career spanned one of the most exciting periods of boxing’s past, from Joe Louis to Muhammad Ali. His experiences and commentary are of great historical significance, encompassing issues of race, sport, culture, and society.</span></p>
