"I can't separate what part of pro football is business and what part is personal with me," he said. "I just know that it is very important that I succeed." He had loved games as a young boy, had played them as a young man, and now, as a naive but determined 27-year-old in the summer of 1959, Lamar Hunt announced that he was going to launch a new football league. What he couldn't possibly have known on that day was that the forces of the entrenched National Football League would soon be arrayed against him. The league would place its own team in his hometown of Dallas, in direct competition with his team, and would attempt to undermine the new league, trying on repeated occasions before that first season to prevent the new American Football League from ever starting. And what the NFL couldn't have known, but would soon find out, was that Hunt, the mild-mannered, bespectacled son of legendary oilman H. L. Hunt, had an indomitable will, and patience beyond his years. Resolute and innovative, he successfully launched the AFL and, seven years later, helped broker a merger deal, which created the need for a championship game between the two leagues. Then he came up with the name of the game--the Super Bowl. Never before, and not since, has anyone with so many resources spent so much time watching, participating in, and being captivated by the absorbing ritual of sports and the suspended state of play. His accomplishments would put him in the company of the other giants of American sports--Charles C. "Cash and Carry" Pyle, Abe Saperstein, George Halas, Branch Rickey, Red Auerbach, Pete Rozelle. Each was present at a revolution. But Hunt, significantly, was present at a number of revolutions. And he was the catalyst for each one. Before his death in 2006, Hunt revolutionized three different sports--pro football, tennis, and soccer--winding up in the Hall of Fame of each. Written by award-winning author Michael MacCambridge, Lamar Hunt: A Life In Sports is the definitive and official biography of one of the 20th century's most important and beloved sporting figures; the soft-spoken, strong-willed man whose audacious challenge to the NFL transformed the landscape of American sports, but only served as an opening act to his epic sporting journey. Drawing on 50 years of Hunt's personal papers and more than 200 interviews, author Michael MacCambridge provides an intimate, original portrait of the man forever captivated by these serious pursuits we call games.

Charming, historic Lamar County, Alabama, lies just within hours of such metropolises as Birmingham, Montgomery, and Nashville. The county was established in the nineteenth century on lands once inhabited and hunted by Native American tribes. Known first as Jones and then as Sanford County, the county was named Lamar in 1877, in honor of L.Q.C. Lamar, a senator from Mississippi. Since its founding, Lamar County has enjoyed bountiful farming, hunting, and fishing; myriad recreational opportunities provided by area waterways; and steadfast family values and community pride. In this captivating collection of vintage photographs readers will be transported to the Lamar County of yesteryear, joining the pioneer settlers who came by covered wagon from Georgia, Tennessee, and the Carolinas. They came with little more than the dream of moving westward to a promising future, and settled a community that would always be defined by its hardworking, unyielding spirit. The early families who came to Lamar County-who built homes, toiled the land, and established local traditions-are the subject of this engaging retrospective. In their faces the story of the county unfolds, and in their legacy the spirit of the county lives on.

"This is a world of confusion. A world of sheep where truth is only measured by comprehension. But for some reason my voice was heard. This small child seems to be special. No matter, he shall serve as my vessel and I shall finally walk among mankind once more. But first I must mold this tiny seed, feed it, protect it and ensure it grows wise and strong. I shall soon pluck him from the tree of life and drank my fill. However, I must tread carefully for there is another being that dwells within this child."

Kendrick Lamar has established himself at the forefront of contemporary hip-hop culture. Artistically adventurous and socially conscious, he has been unapologetic in using his art form, rap music, to address issues affecting black lives while also exploring subjects fundamental to the human experience, such as religious belief. This book is the first to provide an interdisciplinary academic analysis of the impact of Lamar’s corpus. In doing so, it highlights how Lamar’s music reflects current tensions that are keenly felt when dealing with the subjects of race, religion and politics. Starting with Section 80 and ending with DAMN., this book deals with each of Lamar’s four major projects in turn. A panel of academics, journalists and hip-hop practitioners show how religion, in particular black spiritualties, take a front-and-center role in his work. They also observe that his astute and biting thoughts on race and culture may come from an African American perspective, but many find something familiar in Lamar’s lyrical testimony across great chasms of social and geographical difference. This sophisticated exploration of one of popular culture’s emerging icons reveals a complex and multi faceted engagement with religion, faith, race, art and culture. As such, it will be vital reading for anyone working in religious, African American and hip-hop studies, as well as scholars of music, media and popular culture.
