"The autobiography of the legendary coach of the Georgetown Hoyas, whose achievements on and off the basketball court reflect America's unresolved struggle with racial justice"-- Provided by publisher.
After five decades at the center of race and sports in America, Thompson was ready to make the private public, and he completed this autobiography shortly before his death.
