SISTERHOOD AGENDA: STANDING TALL AND SCHOLARSHIPS

 
ANNOUNCEMENTS
 
 

 

 

“If you want to be introduced to the demands and delights of basketball, I am sure this book will satisfy you. If you want a book to speak eloquently about finding and losing a great love, about proud parenthood and passionate competition, rush to get this book. Simply put, it is a wonderful book about the wonder of growing up African American, female, ambitious, and successful. I laughed and cried with this book and was pleased. You go girl!

Maya Angelou

 

“What a story! In a way that touches me very personally, I see in Coach Stringer a mother’s love—and I know that love is the kind of leadership that can change the world.”

Michael Jordan

  

“Thank goodness we have someone like Vivian Stringer, someone with the clarity and courage to stand up for what is right. With Standing Tall, she has answered the call again; when we most need a story to inspire us, she has given us this extraordinary book.”  

—Magic (Earvin) Johnson

 

“Vivian Stringer has a great mind and heart and she isn’t afraid to show it. She is a true champion and hero, in basketball and in life.”

Billie Jean King

 

 “The people who most inspired me in the civil rights movement—from Martin Luther King Jr. to Sidney Poitier and Harry Belafonte—were each protégés of the scholar, artist, athlete, and civil rights activist Paul Robeson and I have long believed that C. Vivian Stringer continues in the proud tradition of this inspiring leader. In Standing Tall, C. Vivian Stringer confirms beyond any doubt that she does indeed stand tall in the tradition of Robeson and King, and I am certain that readers will not simply be moved by her story, but that their lives will be touched and changed for the better for reading it.”

—Andrew Young

 

C. Vivian Stringer is a woman of amazing principle and strength. On or off the basketball court, and whether coping with the triumphs or the tragedies in life, she is always C. Vivian. I have always admired her genuineness and her unfailing optimism, and now readers can too. Standing Tall is a fascinating look into the life of this extraordinary woman.”

 —Pat Head Summitt

 

“In a time of darkness, C. Vivian Stringer stepped forward and led her team—and then the nation. Our country got to see what Coach Stringer’s players have seen for more than thirty years: a model of grace and strength for a generation of young women. She has been an inspiration and a role model for me in coaching and now Standing Tall gives us an uncommon glimpse of the woman behind the coach.”  

Tony Dungy

 

 “Love, honesty, respect, integrity: If you use these ingredients to build strong character—there you have C. Vivian Stringer’s story, and so beautifully written.”

Bill Cosby
