Kareem Abdul-Jabbar promoted a video based on his book “On the Shoulders of Giants” last night at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in New York. The book, which chronicles the change of basketball in America as America’s first all-black professional basketball team rises to fame, also depicts the Harlem Renaissance movement. The video, which is narrated by Beau Bridges and features music by Herbie Hancock, will.i.am, and Chuck D, also features several interviews by notable figures in the black community and basketball. Charles Barkley, Rev. Al Sharpton, Carmelo Anthony, Jerry West, NBA commissioner David Stern, Lamar Odom, the late coach John Wooden, Maya Angelou, and Spike Lee are among those interviewed. Joining Abdul-Jabbar last night was Spike Lee and commissioner David Stern who posed for a photo with the best-selling author and basketball legend.
