About the Author

Art Chansky is a veteran sportswriter and author of several books on UNC basketball, including Light Blue Reign and Blue Blood.


More than just a fan fest, Game Changers reminds us of the tough road toward civil rights this state had to follow. It also shows how athletics can steer popular culture, often for the good.--Ben Steelman, Wilmington Star-News
Mix[es] an examination of the civil rights struggle in Chapel Hill in the 1960s with behind-the-scenes stories on the recruiting and college career of basketball star Charlie Scott, UNC's first Afro-American scholarship player.--Joel Buckley, Community Sports News
Change[s] the way readers view UNC basketball in the 1960s.--The Pilot
A story rich in detail, anecdote, and context.--Eric Frederick, News & Observer
One of the most insightful and intriguing books ever written about college sports.--Caulton Tudor, NC Sports Hall of Fame Writer
[A] fascinating account of Dean Smith, Charlie Scott and turbulent Chapel Hill in the '60s. . . . a must-read.--R.L. Bynum, Raleigh & Company
Not just another sports book faithfully recalling stunning upsets and championship seasons. Instead, this slender volume by veteran sportswriter Art Chansky attempts a more complex narrative, interweaving the stories of legendary coach Dean Smith, basketball star Charlie Scott, and the broader racial and social forces emerging in the town of Chapel Hill and the University of North Carolina during the tumultuous 1960s.--North Carolina Historical Review
Chansky is at his best when he describes Scott's pressure-filled tenure at UNC and how Smith supported Scott.--Journal of Southern History
