Book Discussion | A Most Beautiful Thing: The True Story of America's First All-Black High School Rowing Team, The Author in Conversation


Rower, author, and motivational speaker Arshay Cooper's A Most Beautiful Thing tells the moving true story of the first all-Black high school rowing team in the nation. Cooper's deeply personal memoir shows what growing up on the West Side of Chicago--a part of America known more through stereotypes and bleak statistics--was really like, chronicling how he and his teammates faced adversity at every turn. Told with the perfect mixture of lived experience and a learned perspective, the book is both a reckoning and a recording. While Cooper never forgets the violence that threatened his life and the life of his teammates, he celebrates how his unlikely band of brothers forever changed a sport not in spite of their circumstances but because of them. Aquil Abdullah, the first Black American male to qualify for the Summer Olympics in the sport of rowing, joins Cooper in conversation.
