Basketball great Kareem Abdul Jabbar visited Garfield High School Wednesday morning to discuss the film he created, "On the Shoulders of Giants (the story of the greatest team you never heard of)." The feature-length documentary honors a group of sports pioneers who have been all but forgotten to time, and it celebrates the legacy of a magical game – and the shoulders that today’s players stand on. This story finds its footing in the rhythms of jazz, its roots in the Harlem Renaissance… and its voice in a group of players much too talented to be ignored. The film is now available on Netflix.
