Basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar & Chuck D will close out ICONOCLASTS
Sundance Channel and GREY GOOSE ENTERTAINMENT® have announced the ICONOCLASTS season six finale pairing: basketball Hall of Famer, historian and social activist Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Chuck D, one of hip-hop’s most colossal voices. In the episode, which will air on Tuesday, November 13 at 8:00pm et/pt, the two visionaries rejoin forces after previously working together on the documentary ON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS, which celebrated the richness of the Harlem Renaissance. Sharing many passions beyond basketball and music, the two meet in Kareem’s trophy room, on the basketball court and at an old-school record store to shine a light on untold stories from African-American history. The thought-provoking and powerful conversation between these two outspoken, influential intellectuals explores everything from race relations to history, creativity and activism.
