Jeff Miller

The accepted narrative in football-crazy Texas is that racial integral came to the state’s “national sport” in the mid-1960s, generally associated with Jerry LeVias’ celebrated arrival at SMU in Dallas. But the landmark achievement actually took place quietly almost a decade earlier only about an hour north of Dallas. In the town of Denton, two black football players from Dallas’ segregated public school system boldly walked on to play for what was then called North Texas State College—known today as the University of North Texas. Abner Haynes and Leon King didn’t know what to expect, and neither their dozen or so teammates on North Texas’ freshman team. The players’ arrival came only a few months after North Texas first welcomed a black undergraduate student in February 1956. The school worked its way through both that episode and the integration of its most public face—the football team—with no fanfare and without the hostility on campus that accompanied similar events at many other colleges and universities across the South. There were, though, tense situations when a racial integrated football team played road games in small, segregated Texas towns. Jeff Miller, a veteran Texas sports journalist, has visited with those who lived through it—from the mixed welcome that Haynes and King initially received from their white freshman brethren to those same teammates standing with them after the two blacks were denied service at eateries on the road to a squad that grew into a Bowl team. In The Game Changers, Miller ties the tale of what happened at North Texas beginning in 1956 to contrasting events that took place not far away that reverberated into national relevance. He also chronicles the continued racial integration of major college football in Texas throughout the 1960s.

Jean Chamberlain Froese,Patricia Paddey

The Game Changers is a passionate wake-up call to recognize and rectify a daily tragedy and a global injustice. In the developing world, 300,000 women and girls die during childbirth each year--needlessly, and often agonizingly, from preventable causes. From the frontlines in East Africa, obstetrician Dr. Jean Chamberlain Froese (recognized with the Order of Canada for her humanitarian work) and journalist Patricia Paddey share compelling stories about new initiatives that are empowering women and girls, and changing the social fabric. From her firsthand experiences working to save the lives of mothers and babies in the Majority World, "Dr. Jean" (as she is known internationally) realized that more foreign aid would never stop the pointless losses. Only a complete reversal in attitudes could tackle the complex web of causes; only by confronting the problem on many fronts and "changing the whole game" could the most vulnerable be rescued. The Game Changers shares the moving story of how local leaders are penetrating their culture and working to transform families, institutions and society, and offers readers suggestions for practical ways that they, too, can make a difference.
