The inspirational true story of the first Young Readers ePUB #9734 African American to play college basketball in the deeply segregated Southeastern Conference a powerful moment in Black historyPerry Wallace was born at an historic crossroads in US history He entered kindergarten the year that the Brown v Board of Education decision led to integrated schools allowing blacks and Strong Inside PDFEPUB or whites to learn side by side A week after Martin Luther King Jr's I Have a Dream speech Wallace enrolled in high school and his sensational jumping dunking and rebounding abilities uickly earned him the attention of college basketball recruiters from top schools across the nation In. I am not a fan of basketball but this was still an interesting read with a lot of history and events from the civil rights movement Sports was a big theme but not the main one I felt for all that Perry Wallace went through There are some insults used that may make some people uncomfortable to read but they are historically accurate and are still used today The story did go slow at times so my interest waned I would recommend it for kids or teens who like to read about people who overcome obstacles and show determination 6th grade and up
