"Bill Garrett was the Jackie Robinson of college basketball...a striking and honest portrait of a man overcoming racism in a place that barely acknowledged its existence."
– Publishers Weekly
"In the years before the Civil Rights Movement, black men and women around the country fought for their civil rights and became our unsung heroes by making strides that went mostly unnoticed, and paying prices few realized. Their sacrifices will never be forgotten. Bill Garrett was one young man who heard the spirit of history calling, and answered it."
– Congressman John Lewis
