The Last Shot: City Streets, Basketball Dreams by Darcy Frey
The Last Shot: City Streets, Basketball Dreams

labrys, May 15, 2014

Twenty years after it first offered a heartbreaking window into how inequity in the US sets up so kids for failure, the Last Shot continues to serve as a compelling indictment of our broken educational system. This look behind the curtain of the NCAA and how talented kids are exploited and sacrificed for your viewing pleasure as a basketball fan is a must read for anyone who cares about social justice, education or basketball.
