My Reluctant Journey to Integration at Auburn University

Best Gurl inc, $25


A memoir written by Thom Gossom, Jr. - it begins with his background; growing up in Birmingham during the civil rights movement, and being one of few to integrate John Carroll High School. He speaks about his New Year’s “wish” to play football at Auburn University, then tells his barrier shattering journey, from walking-on in 1970 to being the first black athlete to graduate from Auburn University in 1975, in great detail. “Walk-On,” is a story of overcoming adversity, gaining success, losing it, regaining it and in doing so making history.
