African Americans and Texas' First Pro Football Teams

Central Library: 713.477.0276

The new American Football League, as well as the NFL, placed pro football franchises in Houston and Dallas in 1960. This would mark the first time that top African American football players from other parts of the country would live in officially segregated cities in the south, rather than just visit for an exhibition game.

Learn about their story as players on the first pro football teams in Texas from Robert Jacobus, author of To Live and Play in Dixie: Football's Entry Into the Jim Crow South by Robert Jacobus.
