Alejandro Danois - Boys of Dunbar: Story of Love, Hope, and Basketball

  • Politics & Prose Bookstore 5015 Connecticut Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20008 United States (map)

In his first book, Danois, a sports writer whose work has appeared in The New York Times, The Baltimore Sun, Ebony Magazine, and other publications, replays the 1980-’81 season with the standout basketball team of Baltimore’s Dunbar High School. While the city was beset by crime and a crack epidemic, the team, coached by Bob Wade, a local athlete who’d become an NFL star, not only had a winning year but sent four players—Muggsy Bogues, Reggie Williams, David Wingate, and Reggie Lewis—on to NBA careers.
