Kareems Head Shot

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 shoot a ball through a hoop.” And indeed he can. A lifelong passion for history led to his authoring six best-selling books on various historical subjects. Kareem has in-depth knowledge of many subjects ranging from sports to history to jazz to film. He grew 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, which makes him a dynamic and always thought-provoking speaker.
