Kareem Abdul-Jabbar talks to high school students

L.A. Lakers superstar and "Airplane" actor Kareem Adbul-Jabbar speaks this morning at the William Bodine High School for International Affairs (1101 N. 4th).

Abdul-Jabbar's Skyhook Foundation chose Bodine as the only area school to show students his "On the Shoulders of Giants," a film-based educational program to increase knowledge and awareness among U.S. high school students of the impact of the Harlem Renaissance in sports, music, literature and history.

The program coincides with Bodine's celebration and observance of Black History Month. The World Affairs Council is co-founder of the school and co-sponsor of the event.
