Advocacy, Sports, and Faith

Cassius Clay, Lew Alcindor, and Chris Jackson may not be familiar names to most Americans or even to sports fans. However, it is undeniable that most if not all sports fans would recognize the names Muhammad Ali and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and more devoted fans of basketball would recognize the name Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf.
