Rob Ruck Website

Rob Ruck website Rob Ruck is an author, historian, and professor of the history of sport at the University of Pittsburgh. In courses, books, and documentaries, he’s focused on how different groups of people use sport to tell a story about themselves. We recently worked with Rob to build a website showcasing his work, in particular his newest book, The Tropic of Football, which will be released in July. If you’ve ever admired Troy Polamalu flashing down the field and wondered about his background, you’re going to want to read this book!

Ghosts of Amistad Documentary Website

Ghosts of Amistad website

Promotional website for the documentary film by Tony Buba, based on Marcus Rediker’s The Amistad Rebellion: An Atlantic Odyssey of Slavery and Freedom (Viking-Penguin, 2012).  It chronicles a trip to Sierra Leone in 2013 to visit the home villages of the people who seized the slave schooner Amistad in 1839, to interview elders about local memory of the case, and to search for the long-lost ruins of Lomboko, the slave trading factory where their cruel transatlantic voyage began.  The film uses the knowledge of villagers, fishermen, and truck drivers to recover a lost history from below in the struggle against slavery.
