One of the most recognizable sports personalities in the world takes center stage in Oshkosh, when Kareem Abdul-Jabbar appears live at the Menominee Nation Arena in Downtown Oshkosh. BECOMING KAREEM will be presented by the Menominee Nation Arena and The Grand Oshkosh for one performance only, as part of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s nationwide tour.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s turbulent journey from being the good little boy attending Catholic school to becoming a world-class athlete, world-shaking activist, and world-wide best-selling author was guided by a series of well-meaning mentors. In BECOMING KAREEM, Kareem showcases the top 7 mentors and the most important lessons he learned from each. In some cases, the lessons learned were not the ones intended by the mentor, but were a reaction to what Kareem saw as a flaw in their teaching.
The multi-media presentation will feature photographs, film clips, and music that both set up the time period and, in an entertaining way, demonstrate the lessons involved. This event will be hosted by Roy Firestone, seven-time Emmy Award-winning and seven-time cable ACE Award-winning host, interviewer, narrator, writer, and producer.
Sponsorship opportunities are also available. Contact The Grand Oshkosh at (920) 424-2355 for details.
