Waterman Life & Times of Duke Kahanamoku
On the mainland, Kahanamoku was denied service at restaurants because of his skin color. Kahanamoku was not a firebrand. He was a humble man who preferred to let his actions to speak for him. He confronted racism by forging his own path: he competed in restricted private clubs and whipped their white hopes.
Duke Kahanamoku died in at age 77, having saved surfing from extinction and watched it morph from an activity into a lifestyle. His homeland, too, underwent radical changed during this span, from an independent monarchy to an American-controlled territory to the 50 th state; from an Edenic paradise of natural wonders to an American military hub on the Pacific Rim; from a dot on the map to a glittering tourist destination.
With the millennium fast approaching, media organizations were assembling panels of experts and rating the greatest athletes of the 20 th century.

The Associated Press, which included foreign athletes, reversed the order by placing Ruth first and Jordan second. I assumed that Kahanamoku would rank among the top 50 athletes of all time—maybe even among the top 25—in each survey. What I discovered was disheartening.
