PICTURE BOOK PICK OF THE WEEK



GAME CHANGER – John McLendon and the Secret Game
by John Coy, illustrated by Randy DuBurke;  Carolrhoda Books 2015











An inspiring true story.

1944, Durham, North Carolina: players from Duke University Medical School basketball team stole across town to play against Coach John McLendon’s team from NC College of Negroes.
Why all the secrecy? This was a time of racism and segregation, a time when such a gathering was illegal and dangerous.
This secret game orchestrated by pioneering basketball coach John McLendon  made history.


















Coach McLendon questions for his players:

Who are you?

What are you?
Why are you here on this earth?

Where are you going?
