Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is considered by many fans and sportswriters to be the greatest basketball player of all time. The 7-foot-2 Hall of Fame center, famous for his indefensible skyhook, also dominated the NBA for 20 years. He not only captured the NBA’s MVP six times, was a 19-time All-Star, and set the NBA all-time records in nine categories — he also remains the NBA’s All-Time Leading Scorer, a record that may never be broken.

But as Kareem himself says, “I can do more than stuff a ball through a hoop; my greatest asset is my mind.” And indeed he can. A lifelong passion for history led to his authoring eight best-selling books on various historical subjects. Kareem has in-depth knowledge of many subjects ranging from sports to history to jazz and film. While growing up under the two biggest media spotlights in the world (NY&LA) during the Civil Rights era — as quite literally the most visible black man in the country, this has given Kareem a unique perspective on America’s political and social landscape, and has led him to make a significant impact on the under-served youth of the United States.
