This chapter fits Flood into the sport’s current public memory and explains the ways in which he is trapped within the contradictions of black activist-athletes’ purported demise. It argues that the relationship of co-optation that doomed Flood in the early 1970s manifests now in an anxiety that struggles to discover and reanimate the black activist-athlete as a subject of public address and agent of history.
