Kemba Walker first book

University of Connecticut guard Kemba Walker admitted in a recent Sports Illustrated interview that he had recently read his first book cover-to-cover.

THE ROOT.COM REPORTS:

Last spring Walker approached academic counselor Felicia Crump and asked her if there was a way that he could earn his sociology degree before entering the draft the following year. Walker was required to double up his course load and take classes during the summer in order to graduate this spring. For an independent study course, Crump suggested that Walker read William C. Rhodden’s Forty-Million Dollar Slaves: The Rise, Fall and Redemption of a Black Athlete, which turned out to be the first piece of literature he completed. “That’s true,” Walker told Sports Illustrated. “You can write that. It is the first book I’ve ever read.”

Though his lackluster literary experience doesn’t match his basketball game, Walker is reportedly on track to graduate a year early.
