Bestselling author, basketball legend and cultural
commentator Kareem Abdul-Jabbar explores the heart of issues
that affect Americans today.
Since retiring from professional basketball as the NBA's
all-time leading scorer, six-time MVP, and Hall of Fame
inductee, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has become a lauded observer
of culture and society, a New York Times bestselling author,
and a regular contributor to The Washington Post, TIME
magazine and TIME.com.
He now brings that keen insight to the fore in Writings on
the Wall: Searching for a New Equality Beyond Black and
White, his most incisive and important work of non-fiction
in years. He uses his unique blend of erudition, street
smarts and authentic experience in essays on the country's
seemingly irreconcilable partisan divide - both racial and
political, parenthood, and his own experiences as an
athlete, African-American, and a Muslim. The book is not
just a collection of expositions; he also offers keen
assessments of and solutions to problems such as racism in
sports while speaking candidly about his experiences on the
court and off.
Timed for publication as the nation debates whom to send to
the White House, the combination of plain talk on issues,
life lessons, and personal stories places Writings on the
Wall squarely in the middle of the conversation, as many of
Abdul-Jabbar's topics are at the top of the national agenda.
Whether it is sparring with Donald Trump, within the pages
of TIME magazine, or full-length features in the The New
York Times Magazine, writers, critics, and readers have come
to agree on what The Washington Post observed: Abdul-Jabbar
"has become a vital, dynamic and unorthodox cultural voice."
