Summary, etc.:
"From NBA legend Bill Russell, Go Up For Glory is a basketball memoir that transcends time. First published in 1965, this narrative tracing Russell's childhood in segregated America and detailing the challenges he faced as a black man, even when he was a celebrated NBA star, is both evidence of the progress made in the last fifty years, and an urgent reminder of how far we still have to go"-- Provided by publisher.
