Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Kareem has offered his own unique perspective to the story of the Harlem Renaissance. By doing so, he has provided a moving history of a cultural place and time that can be experienced by our children and grandchildren. As the saying goes, to know where you are going, you must know from whence you came. We came on the shoulders of giants.” Muhammad Ali
“During the Harlem Renaissance of the ‘30s, the African-American community responded to relentless oppression, segregation and disenfranchisement by exploding with an outburst of artistic and political achievement that has never been duplicated in American history. Perhaps Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s vivid and moving rendering of that time in On the Shoulders of Giants can inspire the next generation to connect to that rich artistic history and thereby overcome the ‘get rich or die tryin’' mentality to once again ascend to heights of accomplishment which truly manifests their capabilities.” Herbie Hancock
“Because of his public display of physical and personal grace, I welcome Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s book On the Shoulders of Giants.” Maya Angelou
