CA – An Evening with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

$95 Reception + Reserved Section Seat + book

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the NBA’s all-time leading scorer and a Basketball Hall of Fame inductee. Since retiring, he has been an actor, a basketball coach and the author of eleven books, many of them New York Times best sellers, including What Color is My World?, which won the NAACP Image Award for Best Children’s Book. Abdul-Jabbar is also a columnist for Time Magazine and The Washington Post, writing on a wide range of subjects including race, politics, age and pop culture, and his essays and columns have also appeared in the Huffington Post, in the Los Angeles Times and on, among other publications. In 2012, he was selected as a U.S. Cultural Ambassador.

Since retiring from professional basketball, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has become a lauded observer of culture and society. He now brings that keen insight to the fore in Writings on the Wall: Searching for a New Equality Beyond Black and White. 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.”

DC – Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Signing


NBA legend and author Kareem Abdul-Jabbar signs his new book Writings on the Wall: Searching for a New Equality Beyond Black and White at Politics & Prose on Wednesday, August 24, 2016 at 7:00 PM!

Selected as a U.S. Culture Ambassador in 2012, Abdul-Jabbar demonstrates a forceful diplomacy in this book addressing today’s divided nation. His well-reasoned yet passionate arguments draw on statistics, popular culture, and his own experience as an athlete, a Muslim, and an African American, to reflect on what America is and what it means to be an American. Focusing as much on the issues that divide us–race, gender, and partisan politics—as on the goals that unite us, the Time commentator and former basketball star makes an important contribution to the heated election-year debate about the country’s future.
