Fmr. NBA Player Talks Literacy, Education & The NBA

From illiteracy, to the NBA, to a Master’s Degree

Like so many black boys, Dean Tolson had the dream of making it to the NBA.  He did just that, but it was a fundamental skill that also was a roadblock to greatness… the ability to read. We talk to him and hear his story of true redemption.  It’s a story he recounts in his new book, “The Magna Cum Laude In Me”.
