THE REAL HOOSIERS Crispus Attucks High School, Oscar Robertson, and the Hidden History of Hoops

by | Read by Cary Hite

Contemporary Culture • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Cary Hite narrates in a deep, resonant voice, giving this high school basketball story the gravitas it deserves. Author McCallum reveals some of the racial intolerance behind Indiana's rich tradition of high school basketball. He goes all the way back to 1954, when Milan High School and its all-white team won the state's high school basketball championship, a story first depicted in the 1986 movie HOOSIERS. Here, McCallum focuses on the all-Black team from Crispus Attucks High School that lost to Milan, especially its star, Oscar Robertson. Hite's voice is serious but not staid, clear but never condescending, and definitely commanding--a good match for the subject here. M.B. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2024]
