At the recent meeting of the North American Society for Sport History (NASSH), Johnny Smith, assistant professor of History and Shaw Professor in the School of History and Sociology, received accolades for two pieces of scholarship.

First, the society bestowed its annual book award for 2017 upon Blood Brothers: The Fatal Friendship between Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X. The NASSH monograph award “recognizes outstanding research and writing in the field of sports history.”  

NASSH also retroactively recognized Smith’s article “‘It’s Not Really My Country’: Lew Alcindor and the Revolt of the Black Athlete,” as the best article published in the Journal of Sport History in 2009.

Congratulations to Johnny Smith on these well-deserved recognitions.
