NBA great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar presides over this informative and inspiring collection of accounts that highlight both the Harlem Renaissance era and defining moments in the author's own life. Using Harlem's unique and tumultuous history as his backdrop, Abdul-Jabbar showcases the many brilliant thinkers, innovators, artists, and athletes who influenced a nation while persevering through extreme hardships. Abdul-Jabbar's narration is assisted by a wide assortment of famous modern-day stars from all corners of popular culture who step in to share stories of influential mentors and introduce excerpts from famous works in African-American history. Speeches and ruminations from W.E.B Du Bois, Langston Hughes, and Martin Luther King, Jr., among many others, share space with timeless musical recordings, making this a truly multimedia experience.
