Lamar Jackson in Jason Reid’s new book

Jason Reid, senior NFL writer for ESPNShe has released a new book called Rise of the Black Quarterback: What It Means for America.

The book follows the history of the NFL’s black quarterbacks, who were once told to switch positions after college or they would not be drafted. There was a perception that they lacked the work ethic and intelligence to understand NFL playbooks, couldn’t lead white men, or muster the tenacity to play through pain.

That changed over the years with pioneering players like Doug Williams.
