In what ways did these men face questions about their race, manhood, and their roles as leaders for their families and communities? What, if anything, changed over the period covered by this book? How were theories about uplift and race united by the actions of the boxers studied by Moore? How might a study on sports, like this book, give us a deeper understanding of culture, race, gender, and politics? How does the documentary add context to the book? What specific content supports or refutes the argument of the book? Is there anything in the documentary that adds complexity to the story of boxers in Moore’s book? How did the legacy of the Civil War and Reconstruction define “freedom” for African Americans? What was the target of the mob violence in Tulsa, OK, in 1921? How does this podcast episode strengthen, complicate, or change the story told in the assigned book and documentary? What are your thoughts about the memory of the Tulsa Massacre in American culture? Had you heard of it before? If so, does this telling of the history of that event add to your previous knowledge?
