ABOUT

If you fall down get up and finish.

Dwight Slaughter graduated from Verbum Dei High School, a school with one of the top 10 winning basketball teams of all time. While at Verbum Dei High School Dwight was voted number one player in the Country in 1972 by different sports magazines.  He then went on to further his education and play basketball at Cal State Los Angeles from 1972 to 1976—a period that would set a precedent with new laws changing how colleges accept athletes. During his athletic career, Slaughter was interviewed by such greats as Howard Cosell, on his show SportsBeat and in his book, I Never Played the Game; Morley Safer from 60 Minutes; and John Chancellor from World Nightly News. He was voted by ESPN and Sports Illustrated as one of the top 100 basketball players in the State of California.

As a child, Slaughter relied on basketball to build his self-esteem and relieve the stress of mental and physical abuse. His gripping memoir follows his public career and takes the reader inside his personal life as well—into a childhood of abuse, betrayal…even murder.

About the Author: Dwight Slaughter was born in Los Angeles, California, in 1954. His expertise is basketball and mentoring youths and adult men, and he promotes concerts that give back to life-changing organizations and people.

A true life story I know I am one of his brothers By Ray A. Slaughter on April 3, 2014 Format: Paperback Amazon Verified Purchase I am going to get straight to the point. My brother is telling the world in his book the truth about his life experience. I rate this book a 100 if the rating when that high. What I like about this book he letting the world know exactly what happen to him while growing up to become one of the best athlete in really the world. Because if you check the statistic doing his career of the 70’s in basketball, it speak for itself, it’s in black and white. For those who read this book some will say to themselves,” whow, that happen to me” What dislike about this book the publisher did not include photos of his athlete career. I highly recommend for the young generations, teenagers, adults and older to read this book. What you learn is you will see my brother for who was and is now. He has a beautiful heart,Humble, he smart, God Fearing, very athletic just a well as I was and still is. I am not just saying because he’s my brother. Just because, He’s a person and honest. Read the book you will see what I am talking about, and if you ever get a chance to me him you will see he a beautiful person speaking the truth and keeping it real. I applause him. Remember my brother GOD GOT A BLESSING WITH YOUR NAME ON IT
