Description

THE DAY SNOW TURNED BLACK This book is about African Americans in skiing and the evolution of the National Brotherhood of Skiers (NBS). It includes interesting stories told by the individuals who helped to make the NBS what it is today. The memories, history, and the essence of the organization have been captured for over 35 years. This presentation will take you back in time when black Americans were not a part of organized skiing - a time before the NBS. It describes how the NBS Black Summit became the largest ski convention in the country. The NBS story is made viable by the programs that have been an integral part of its operation such as the youth ski scholarship program*, youth and adult racing, gospel fest worship services, safety program, recognitions and awards, and annual meetings. Memorable and not so memorable evening parties, happy hours, fun races and picnics in the snow are described. There were power struggles, winners and losers, romantics, antics and addicts working together that stimulated this evolution. *50 % of the profits from this book will be donated to the NBS Olympic Scholarship Fund.
