Derrick E. White

Derrick E. White is a visiting associate professor of African and African American Studies and History at Dartmouth College.

White’s research focuses on modern black history and sports history. He is currently working on a book that inspects the intersections of college, sports and race. Specifically, he focuses on how longtime Florida A&M University football coach Jake Gaither built a program in the midst of segregation. The story of FAMU reveals the history of black college football and serves to examine the larger issues Black college athletes faced in the twentieth century.
