Hosted by Patrick Sauer and David J. Roth
Featuring Theresa Runstedtler, author of Black Ball: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Spencer Haywood, and the Generation that Saved the Soul of the NBA
Created and hosted by writers Patrick Sauer and David J. Roth, Squawkin’ Sports is an ongoing series featuring book chats with grown-up authors writing about grown-ups playing kiddie games. For this installment, Sauer and Roth chat with author and scholar, Theresa Runstedtler, about her new book Black Ball. Of this vital narrative history of 1970s pro basketball and the Black players who shaped the NBA, Howard Bryant says, "The NBA is cool. The story of the Black players who transformed the game into what it is today is even cooler." Join Runstedtler, Sauer, and Roth virtually for another installment of our beloved series on sports and the stories that make them so gloriously human.
