Basketball Hall of Famers join co-hosts Kris Rhim and Professor Marty Dobrow to discuss issues of race and social justice, including their own formative experiences, while providing their views on current social issues and the role basketball can play in building a more just society.

We first discussed the possibility on an alternative spring break trip in St. Augustine Florida (subject of much of my research and my next book) in March 2019. We began it that fall, and had a number of prominent guests. Last year, we were picked up by the Basketball Hall of Fame, and the podcast shifted somewhat to become a series of interviews with Hall of Famers about their social justice stories. The basic premise is that modern players (e.g. LeBron James) routinely talk about issues of race and social inequity, but Hall of Famers are of a generation where they were actively discouraged from having those conversations. So our interviews plunge deeply into territory that has not been deeply mined--but it is quite rich.

 

We have spoken with a number of legendary players in both men's and women's basketball, including Grant Hill, Tamika Catchings, Tina Thompson, Jerry West, Robert Parish, Bernard King, Bob Cousy, Nancy Lieberman, etc.
