On The Shoulders of Giants

In 1939 A team of hard playing black men from Harlem faced a fiercely competitive white team in Chicago, in a game that would forever change the face of basketball and America. The Harlem Rens, America’s first all-black professional basketball team, rose to fame during a time when jazz was the soul of Harlem and basketball was its heartbeat. When a home court doubled as a dance hall and was shared with some of the greatest jazz musicians of all time.

Best-selling author and sports legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar presents On the Shoulders of Giants to showcase the astounding outburst of creative energy known as the Harlem Renaissance…and to tell the story of a team that came from the heart of it, the greatest basketball team you never heard of…
