Barnstorming America Stories from the Pioneers of Women's Basketball


Barnstorming America Stories from the Pioneers of Women's Basketball 

In an era when women had only recently been given the right to vote and the Great Depression made jobs of any kind hard to come by, American women of the 1930s faced an uphill battle when it came to accessing opportunities to work outside the home. 
About the same time, the relatively-new sport of basketball was gaining popularity in America and its schools. Girls were allowed to play basketball, too, although the rules were modified to accommodate the lack of strength, stamina and selflessness of the "weaker sex" attributes deemed necessary to play basketball the way boys and men did. Many girls, however, excelled at basketball, to the extent that they wanted to keep playing after finishing high school. But apart from Amateur Athletic Union programs and the rare college teams, organized basketball after high school was out of reach of most women. Women's professional leagues were still four decades away from reality.
But in 1936, entrepreneur and visionary C.M. "Ole" Olson, already in the barnstorming basketball business with his own men's traveling team, felt that not only were women ready to play basketball at a high level, but that people would turn out in large numbers to pay to see them play. From his home base in Cassville, Missouri, he recruited the best female basketball players he could find and formed the All American Red Heads the very first women's professional basketball team to hit America's roads and operate successfully. Playing against men's teams by men's rules, the Red Heads barnstormed across America, playing a grueling schedule of one-night stands and winning the vast majority of their games. Other barnstorming women's teams joined the Red Heads as barnstormers, including the Ozark Hill Billies, Arkansas Travelers, Texas Cowgirls, Southern Belles and others. In the years and decades that followed, these groundbreaking women dismantled the wall of gender stereotypes and barriers regarding women, each victory over men taking another brick out of the wall.
Barnstorming America Stories of the Pioneers of Women's Basketball tells the story of the women who helped reshape America's attitudes toward women in sports and paved the way for today's professional women's leagues. Award-winning historian and author John Molina interviewed over 80 veterans of the barnstorming wars and their families, recording their experiences both on and off the court. The result is a treasure-trove of anecdotes and stories that paint a vivid picture of life as a professional women s basketball player something almost unthinkable before 1936.

He becomes Feletia's Regent, sparking a political and marital struggle that could bring the flames of galactic war to the peaceful planet.





Bent Ink




Atlanta is hot and wet and it isn't the humidity. Come and play in Little Five Points Georgia as the tribe of friends and family witness changes that challenge everything they've protected and worked toward. 
 
Bentley (ATL Midtown series by Nichole Harris) was content. Right? Sure, he was a principle at an advancing tech company. The creator was his mentor and the culture of the company fit him perfectly. His predilection for ink and piercings meant nothing there. It allowed him to be back in Atlanta, close to his sister and not too damn close to his Mother in Augusta. His other family was dormant at the moment. Just like he liked it. Just as they should be. He had a great gym where he could train and spar. 

Hell he even had somewhat of a social life because of an embarrassing attempt to reconnect with an old girlfriend. He had made several friends in the city. Everything was settling out nicely. He went to a holiday party and just as quickly as a thunderstorm could darken the sky in June, Amy Brody turned his way. It was a beginning. If he managed not to be strung up by her brother and friends, it could be a beginning. He should run. He new he should, but he wouldn't, he couldn't. She already had a part of him he swore was dead.  

Amy-I had been damn near dead for over two years and out of nowhere this man appeared. I had no reason or right to trust him, but I did. I not only trusted him, I was mesmerized by him. He was a blond leopard with ice blue eyes that pierced me. William Bentley Carter III came to my tattoo shop and took me to coffee. Then he gave me my first sexual kiss in over two years. It was delivered with aggression and hunger. Given my past, how could I allow it? I drank it in like a starving inmate.
