5.0 out of 5 stars Kareem Abdul Jabbar: A Giant & Masterful Teacher and Writer!
By Junior Lion 48 on March 4, 2020
My grandparents, the Reverend James E Peters and Lennie Frances Ruff Peters, migrated from Kershaw County South Carolina, with four sons and two daughters, to New York City around 1921. He founded a Baptist Missionary which later became the First Calvary Baptist Church, still in existence. I was born in January 1948 at Harlem Hospital, resided at 293 Lenox Avenue, Apt. 3A (corner 125th St.), and educated in Public Schools, enlisted in armed services at age 17.

On the Shoulders of "Kareem Abdul Jabbar", whom I've admired since Power Memorial, I continue to learn, absorb and understand "ME" much more with each reading. On my third reading!
