Book Discussion: Writings on the Wall (Candid Conversations Wichita)

View all events in: August 2017 | South Central

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is best known for his years as a leading basketball player in the NBA. More recently he has turned social commentator and writer. In this book, he tackles the issue of race in America with insight from his experiences as an athlete, a parent, a Muslim, and a black man. These essays not only demonstrate the persistence of racial inequality today, but offer his thoughts on solutions to some of the issues that plague us.

Part of Candid Conversations, a city-wide, collaborative series of events in Wichita that looks at how race functions in society and how policing affects minority communities; preserves the voices of Wichita's communities of color; and encourages community members to tell their stories.
