Interview with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
QUESTION 3
JACKIE SHEARER:

And what about his name change, did that have any particular meaning to you? Did you understand what that was about?

KAREEM ABDUL-JABBAR:

Ah, only on the surface. I really, you know, when he changed his name I, I really didn't have a firm grasp of what the Nation of Islam was about and those types of things. I knew that they had some political leanings and were trying to organize people, but I didn't know exactly what it was about.
