Becoming Kareem

Live On-Stage, based on the best-selling book by the same name, is an exciting new multimedia conversation before a live audience, featuring one-on-one candid discussions about Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s storied basketball career and his reflections on the people and places that impacted his view of life.

Hosted By 7-time Emmy Award winning Sports Commentator Roy Firestone
“For forty years, I’ve had the privilege of covering the evolving career of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar —from elite basketball player to eloquent author and engaged Social Justice Warrior,” says Firestone. “I realized, in knowing and watching him, he needs a unique way of telling his remarkable story in a format that is both in-depth and intimate. It is a great honor to host Kareem in this brand new multimedia interview format.”

BECOMING KAREEM will look back at the life of this extraordinary American who rose from a child of the housing projects in New York City to become an internationally known athlete, best-selling author, philanthropist, diplomat, political activist and recipient of The Presidential Medal of Freedom.
