Above the Rim: How Elgin Baylor Changed Basketball
Jen Bryant and Frank Morrison

The story of Elgin Baylor, Hall of Fame-basketall player and civil rights advocate — written by Sibert Medal-winner Jen Bryant with illustrations by Corretta Scott King Award-winner Frank Morrison.

Hall-of-famer Elgin Baylor was one of basketball’s all-time-greatest players — an innovative athlete, team player, and quiet force for change. One of the first professional African-American players, he inspired others on and off the court. But when traveling for away games, many hotels and restaurants turned Elgin away because he was black. One night, Elgin had enough and staged a one-man protest that captured the attention of the press, the public, and the NBA.
