Kareem Abdul-Jabbar On Racial Justice


Bronx, NY – Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is a global icon that changed the game of professional basketball and went on to become a celebrated author, filmmaker, and ambassador of education.

As one of the NBA’s all time greatest players, the 7-foot-2 Hall of Fame center, famous for his indefensible skyhook, dominated the NBA for 20 years and is the NBA’s All-Time Leading Scorer with 38,387 points.

Prior to his stellar professional career, Kareem led the UCLA Bruins to three consecutive NCAA championships and is the only player in the 75-year history of the NCAA to be named the Most Valuable Player of the Tournament three consecutive years. (From his Kareemabduljabbar.com)
