    " EXCELLENT historical piece about NY, the Harlem Renaissance, African-American history. Listened to it on a 12-hour drive. It was so engaging that we barely realized we were driving. Engrossing. Also introduces Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as an historian. Avery Brooks is wonderful! "

    " Very enjoyable & informative overview of the Harlem Renaissance, & how it impacted the life of Kareem Abdul-Jabar. Very enjoyable whether or not you are a basketball fan, and helpful for me to understand this era of American history. "

    " Semi-encyclopedic account of Kareem's interest in Harlem. Leans heavily on honorific adjectives as he describes Harlem figures. Good basketball details and excellent picture of Cab Calloway looking to play some tough D. "
