Angela James: The first superstar of women's hockey| January 29, 2013
Angela James is the first woman, first openly gay player, and second black athlete to ever be inducted in the Hockey Hall of Fame. But, of course, there is much more to her story.
Ellie Gordon-Moershel interviews Angela James and author Corey Long about the new biography Angela James: The First Superstar of Women's Hockey.
The book chronicles "James' rise to stardom from learning how to play on borrowed skates to dominating as an international success, from her controversial exclusion from the 1998 Olympic women's hockey team and its aftermath to becoming a passionate educator, coach and mother that she is today."
