Book Synopsis
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

‘Blackballed’ spotlights racial injustice rampant in college sports
Author Faheem Abdullah Kamal shocks and opens eyes with a revealing look at the dark side of college baseball

PORTLAND, Oregon. – Baseball is considered the All-American Sport. It is as much a symbol of America as apple pie and the bald eagle, yet even the popularly venerated game is still privy to the racial prejudice of a bygone era. In “Blackballed” author Faheem Abdullah Kamal shocks and opens readers’ eyes by revealing the dark, bigoted side of injustice that remains a stigma in college baseball.

This book follows the life of young Adam Kamal as he enters his first year in Pierce Community College. The plan was for him to move into an apartment with his father staying there for only a few months until he can live on his own. Soon things go awry when Adam along with his friend Rico and the other members of the baseball team are harassed and bullied by the head coach, who was the kind

"Blackballed," a great story of more than baseball, or athletics. The single father takes full responsibility raising his young children without a woman? Most men don't have THAT kind of COURAGE,ETHICS,or VALUES? The story brings out challenges young people face in elementary, and high school. It illustrates bullying happens more often than we think in public schools. He found himself playing on a Little League World Series contending team. From that experience Adam had a burning desire to be the best he could be. He trained hard with professional athletes. By his junior year of high school. He became one of the best players in high school. Bigotry, and religious discrimination he suffered by coaches in college caused irreparable damage. Student/Athletes were encouraged by "Gangsters" to create "a hostile environment." Adam was assaulted by players on his own team. The State Attorney General should have done more. A "mind-blower" everyone should read.
