This book tells the little-known story of a highly celebrated auto-racingevent for African Americans, the Gold and Glory Sweepstakes. These races were heldin Indiana and throughout the Midwest during the racial turbulence of the 1920s and1930s, when the Ku Klux Klan cast a shadow over the social and political landscapeof the state and region. The story is told through the eyes and emotions ofIndianapolis auto mechanic Charlie Wiggins. The greatest African American driver ofthe era, Wiggins was known as the "Negro Speed King." Set against the colorfulbackdrop of gangsters, bootleggers, the birth of jazz, and the early history of autoracing in the United States, For Gold and Glory chronicles the tragedies andtriumphs of a dedicated group of individuals who overcame tremendous odds to chasetheir dreams.
