- What is the purpose of this letter?
- Why do you think that Brewer would use phrases like, "you know the conditions here" and "I know that you understand the tradition that a colored man cannot come here?"
- Do you think that Iowa State College would have brought and tried to play Jack Trice if been able to play? What makes you think this?
- How does this quote from The Life and Legacy of Jack Trice essay help to underscore what would happen on the football field: "African Americans who played for predominantly white institutions faced extraordinary hazards and abuse."
