Writings on the Wall: Searching for a New Equality beyond Black and White by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Raymond Obstfeld

Basketball legend and cultural commentator Kareem Abdul-Jabbar explores how the America of today is a fractured society, sharply divided along the lines of race, gender, religion, political party and economic class.  In Writings on the Wall he examines these issues with insight and passion as he draws from his own experiences as a superstar athlete, an inquisitive scholar, a celebrity, a father, an African American and a Muslim.

Abdul-Jabbar probes the roots of bias and unfairness that remain a stubborn part of America, bringing a bright spotlight of reason and curiosity, illuminating the way to a more unified country and making a compelling case for how America can create equal opportunity for all its citizens, not just the few and the favored.
