On the Shoulders of Giants invites readers to take an extraordinary journey from the 1920s to the 1940s through one of the greatest political, cultural, literary, and artistic movements in our history, revealing the tremendous impact the Harlem Renaissance had not only on African-American history, but all of our history… American history. Meet the athletes, jazz musicians, comedians, actors, politicians, entrepreneurs, and writers who not only inspired Kareem’s rise to greatness but other icons as well. In the audio series, Kareem shares fascinating private conversations with such legends as Herbie Hancock, Maya Angelou, will.i.am, Quincy Jones, Samuel L. Jackson, Louis Gossett Jr., Billy Crystal, Jesse L. Martin, Avery Brooks, Bob Costas, Dr. Julius Irving, Coach John Wooden, Jerry West, Charles Barkley, James Worthy, Bill Russell, and many other of today’s NBA players.

"The subtitle says it all: 'The greatest basketball team you never heard of.' Their actual name was the Harlem Renaissance, but they were known to their many fans and admirers as the Rens. To understand their significance, and the history they made (much of it lost or forgotten) you have to understand the broader picture of race in America during the first half of the 20th century, and the unique culture of Harlem. To do this, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Deborah Morales corralled the most impressive, diverse and in some cases surprising array of interview subjects imaginable, including Maya Angelou, Dr. Cornel West, Bill Russell, Charles Barkley, Wynton Marsalis, Bob Costas, the late John Wooden, Spike Lee, Samuel L. Jackson, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Julius Erving, Jerry West, and Herbie Hancock, to name just a few! They all make significant, even eloquent, contributions to the story of a remarkable group of men who comprised the first all-black professional basketball team in America."
