Summary
  • "The autobiography of the legendary coach of the Georgetown Hoyas, whose achievements on and off the basketball court reflect America's unresolved struggle with racial justice. After five decades at the center of race and sports in America, Thompson was ready to make the private public, and he completed this autobiography shortly before his death. His book drives us through his childhood under JIm Crow segregation to our current moment of racial reckoning. His life on and off the basketball court threw America's unresolved struggle with racial justice into sharp relief."--
