Hardcover. Condition: New. About the AuthorJohn Thompson was the head basketball coach at Georgetown University from 1972 to 1999, where he won the NCAA championship in 1984. He was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1999. He was a graduate of Providence College and held a masters degree in guidance and counseling from the University of the District of Columbia. He completed I Came As a Shadow shortly before his death in the summer of 2020.Jesse Washington is a writer for ESPNs The Undefeated and was previously the national writer on race and ethnicity at the Associated Press, managing editor of Vibe, and editor-in-chief of Blaze.Product DescriptionA NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOKThe long-awaited autobiography from Georgetown Universitys legendary coach, whose life on and off the basketball court throws Americas unresolved struggle with racial justice into sharp reliefJohn Thompson was never just a basketball coach and I Came As a Shadow is categorically not just a basketball autobiography.After three decades at the center of race and sports in America, the first Black head coach to win an NCAA championship is ready to make the private public. Chockful of stories and moving beyond mere stats (and what stats! three Final Fours, four times national coach of the year, seven Big East championships, 97 percent graduation rate), Thompsons book drives us through his childhood under Jim Crow segregation to our current moment of racial reckoning. We experience riding shotgun with Celtics icon Red Auerbach, and coaching NBA Hall of Famers like Patrick Ewing and Allen Iverson. How did he inspire the phrase Hoya Paranoia? Youll see. And thawing his historically glacial stare, Thompson brings us into his negotiation with a DC drug kingpin in his players orbit in the 1980s, as well as behind the scenes on the Nike board today.Thompsons mother was a teacher who couldnt teach because she was Black. His father could not read or write, so the only way he could identify different cements at the factory where he worked was to taste them. Their son grew up to be a man with his own life-sized statue in a building that bears his familys name on a campus once kept afloat by the selling of 272 enslaved people. This is a great American story, and John Thompsons experience sheds light on many of the issues roiling our nation. In these pages, he proves himself to be the elder statesman college basketball and the country need to hear from now.I Came As A Shadow is not a swan song, but a bullhorn blast from one of Americas most prominent sons.ReviewThe New York Times 100 Notable Books of 2021The Progressive Favorite Books of 2021The Wall Street Journal Who Read What: Entertainers Share Their Favorite Books of 2021: Chosen by Keyshawn JohnsonPlainspoken and profound an unusually good sports memoir a consequential book.-The New York TimesThis superb book . has been eagerly awaited for years. . Thompson stresses the racial undercurrent that ran through his and Georgetowns performances on the court.-Washington PostReminds me of The Autobiography of Malcolm X. A Black man of stature, intelligence, and notoriety tells of his life in the United States. Thompsons book, written with Jesse Washington, comments on slavery, racism, money in college sports, and education. And, as his mother, Anna, taught him as a boy, Thompson always speaks his mind.-The ProgressiveIn August, I offered NPR listeners an appetizer at the end of John Thompsons life. I Came As a Shadow is the full meal. What drives you forward as a reader are the experiences. The moments youd heard about and the ones you had not; the private thoughts of a public man; the complexity of a Black man who both raged against societys racial injustice and eagerly embraced the opportunities to make things better; and the opinions of a person who remained relevant to the end of his life.-NPRA story of hard-won mobility and triumph. Just like its subject, I Cam. Seller Inventory # DADAX1250619351
