The Undefeated

—Kadir Nelson This poem is an ode, as Kwame writes, to “the dreamers and
doers.” Those who beat odds, stared down fear, made this nation better. We are
proud that this poem has now become a book bearing our name, The
Undefeated.

The Newbery Award-winning author of THE CROSSOVER pens an ode to black American triumph and tribulation, with art from a two-time Caldecott Honoree. Originally performed for ESPN's The Undefeated, this poem is a love letter to black life in the United States. It highlights the unspeakable trauma of slavery, the faith and fire of the civil rights movement, and the grit, passion, and perseverance of some of the world's greatest heroes. The text is also peppered with references to the words of Martin Luther King, Jr., Langston Hughes, Gwendolyn Brooks, and others, offering deeper insights into the accomplishments of the past, while bringing stark attention to the endurance and spirit of those surviving and thriving in the present. Robust back matter at the end provides valuable historical context and additional detail for those wishing to learn more.

It is 1763, and the French and Indian War is taking a toll on the colonists, British soldiers, and their Indian allies. As two men on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean struggle with internal demons, both have no idea that they are about to become entangled with a seductive, mysterious woman who has devious intentions. As surgeon Thomas Gage skillfully operates on one soldier after the other, he knows he must decide whether to pursue his medical career or fulfill his mothers wishes to marry and carry on the family legacy. Meanwhile, Richard Hayes, a high-ranking officer in the British army, is desperately searching Boston for an evil swindler. He has one year to retrieve the money and clear his name before he is sent to prison. In an ironic twist of fate, Gages mother has a chance encounter with Margaret Ann Thatcher, the niece of a wealthy merchant whose temptations are about to lead her into a forbidden relationship. As one war ends, a battle between good and evil rages on as the lives of three vastly different characters become intertwined in a web of treachery, greed, and insurmountable challenges that only the resilient will survive.

For three perfect seasons (1954-1956), the Oklahoma Sooners won every football game they played - home or away - and over the course of five years they won 47 straight games. This awesome record was the product of a genius and masterful coach named Bud Wilkinson and the spirited young men he led. The Undefeated will detail all the thrilling action on the field during this record winning streak, but it will also reveal all the behind-the-scenes tumult and pressure swirling around it. Dent presents an absorbing character study of the brilliant, complex coach who engineered it all - Bud Wilkinson, the on-field genius whoses starched-shirt public persona hid a man of many secrets and an in-depth look at a state and its people still suffering from a Depression hangover and an identity crisis, who took up the Sooners football banner almost as a religious cause. Through it all, the young men who accomplished this amazing feat shine in vivid life.

Legions of self-help authors rightly urge personal development as the key to happiness, but they typically fail to focus on its most important objective: hardiness. Though that which doesn't kill us can make us stronger, as Nietzsche tells us, few authors today offer any insight into just how to springboard from adversity to strength. It doesn't just happen automatically, and it takes practice. New scientific research suggests that resilience isn't something with which only a fortunate few of us have been born, but rather something we can all take specific action to develop. To build strength out of adversity, we need a catalyst. What we need, according to Dr. Alex Lickerman, is wisdom—wisdom that adversity has the potential to teach us. Lickerman's underlying premise is that our ability to control what happens to us in life may be limited, but we have the ability to establish a life-state to surmount the suffering life brings us. The Undefeated Mind distills the wisdom we need to create true resilience into nine core principles, including: A new definition of victory and its relevance to happiness The concept of the changing of poison into medicine A way to view prayer as a vow we make to ourselves. A method of setting expectations that enhances our ability to endure disappointment and minimizes the likelihood of quitting An approach to taking personal responsibility and moral action that enhances resilience A process for managing pain—both physical and emotional—that enables us to push through obstacles that might otherwise prevent us from attaining our goals A method of leveraging our relationships with others that helps us manifest our strongest selves Through stories of patients who have used these principles to overcome suffering caused by unemployment, unwanted weight gain, addiction, rejection, chronic pain, retirement, illness, loss, and even death, Dr. Lickerman shows how we too can make these principles function within our own lives, enabling us to develop for ourselves the resilience we need to achieve indestructible happiness. At its core, The Undefeated Mind urges us to stop hoping for easy lives and focus instead on cultivating the inner strength we need to enjoy the difficult lives we all have.

"The scene is a hospital room where, Archer, a young veteran and amputee, is bent on seducing his prim and proper nurse. He feels that his self-esteem as a man (which has been undermined by the loss of his leg) will be restored by making love to Miss Harris--but she isn't having any. Trying another ploy, Archer snaps a disco tape into his recorder, and slowly Miss Harris gives way to her secret passion for dancing: her behind begins to twitch, her shoulders follow, and shortly she is dancing energetically about the room, loosening the buttons of her well-starched uniform. When Archer hops over to join her Miss Harris quickly regains control of herself--but the ice has definitely been broken and, as confidences are exchanged, it appears certain that something more substantial than the mere gratification of Archer's lecherous impulses may well be in the offing."--

It is Spring in America. By 1972 the war in Vietnam is winding down. At least that's what everyone thinks. Sergeant Mike Corbett volunteers to retrieve classified weapons from a remote Post in the Northern Province of QuangTri. The Americans are leaving. But the Vietnamese Communists aren't waiting. Corbett is caught up in the massive Easter offensive; on the ground before Military Intelligence realizes the scope of the enemy offensive. A few hundred Americans, mostly technicians, are stranded in the middle of Indian Country. Boogieman's out there; thousands of them. The Americans hold their ground and plan a defense. Their Special Weapons are useless in a firefight, so they are left with the same M-16 as any grunt. Evacuation is not feasible. At stake are Weapons Specialists and weapons components so sensitive that the alternative to overrun is Emergency Demolition. The Big Bang. The greatest fear is that a South Vietnamese collapse will leave the isolated Americans as virtual hostages. March 1973 the last U.S. troops will officially leave Vietnam. Corbett faces 365 and a wake-up. This is the Lost Battalion of the Vietnam War.

When they landed in Oakland, California, he finally felt totally, completely safe. He felt that he could handle anything that came his way. Thirty years later, he had forgotten about the booby traps and the bullets that snapped as they flew by his head, but he noticed that he dragged his right foot when he walked and his right arm lacked movementit hung limp like a pendulum on an unwound clock.

According to the National Football League, the 1972 Miami Dolphins are the only undefeated, untied Super Bowl champions. But pro football's first undefeated championship team was crowned in 1948, when the Cleveland Browns won their third straight All-America Football Conference title with a record of 15 victories, no losses and no ties. They were led by Hall of Fame head coach Paul Brown, whose methods revolutionized the game and influenced every coach who followed. On the field, the '48 Browns' roster featured six future Hall of Famers, including Marion Motley and Bill Willis, who broke pro football's color barrier with the first snap of the 1946 season.
