A Chat with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was one of the best players in basketball history. He joined the NBA in 1970 and played for 20 years. He was the NBA's most valuable player six times and a 19-time All-Star. After the NBA, Abdul-Jabbar began scoring in the literary world. In his new children’s book, he shines the spotlight on African-Americans Inventors whose achievements often went unnoticed. In What Color is My World?, Abdul-Jabbar recognizes the unsung heroes behind open-heart surgery, the traffic light and even the ice-cream scoop. TFK Kid Reporter Julia Horbacewicz recently interviewed the athlete and author in New York City. Watch highlights from their interview above.
