About the Author
James A. Washington is a former professional, collegiate, and playground basketball player, and a first-time author born and raised in Harlem, New York. A graduate of the High School of Music and Art, Washington has a unique blend of personal and professional skills not often captured in a writer or author. As a high-performing athlete, he's experienced the joy of pure competition as well as values predicated upon the dedication, sacrifice, and discipline required to become exceptional in his sport. As an artist, he has received a formal education in graphic design and has used his creative passion as a perfect counterbalance to his athletic life. James has written several articles for publication for The New Pittsburgh Courier and in various industry circles. He is currently a contractor at NASA where he has worked for the last fifteen years.

This is a great read for any basketball fan, especially those of the inner city, but more importantly, it's a great read for those looking to overcome obstacles in life."

-Bob Starkey, Women's Assistant Basketball Coach, Auburn Tigers

"An incredible tribute to any inner-city athlete emerging from the desperately challenging, inspiring, and rewarding basketball era of the 1960s, '70s and '80s."

-Ron Moore, Second-Round NBA Draft Pick 1987, New York Knicks

". . . a triumph in what illuminates our country's ongoing struggles with the realities of racial strife, flaring emotions, determination, and heartache."

-Josie Olsvig, Author of Gullah Tears
