About this item

From Michael Jordan to George Bush Sr., Craig Hodges has never been shy about speaking truth to power—and it cost him dearly. In the prime of his career Hodges was blackballed from the NBA for using his platform as professional athlete to stand up against racism and economic exploitation. In this well-told, passionate, and historically literate memoir, Hodges shares the stories—to include his encounters with Nelson Mandela, Coretta Scott King, Jim Brown, R Kelly, Michael Jordan and more—of his life-long crusade to improve the conditions for African Americans.
