“I can do more than stuff a ball through a hoop... my greatest asset is my mind.”

- Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

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.
