Author Daniel McLaurin III will appear on "Smile Lady Debra Johnson" on Pasadena Charter cable television's Arroyo channel 32 4 p.m. March 12.
Here's a clip from my Paging column about McLaurin and his book:
Celebrate Black History Month with Daniel McLaurin III’s “32 Minutes of Greatness: Special Edition” (Falcon Creek Publishing, $16). The book recounts how basketball Coach Carl L. Easterling helped the Hillside High School Hornets in Durham, North Carolina consistently score 100 points or more during their games in the 1960s. The story of the team’s prowess was all but lost in sports history because of the racism and turbulence of the time. McLaurin was a starting forward for the Hornets and went on to play with the Washington Bullets (now the Washington Wizards). He is retired and lives in Pasadena.
Tune in and be inspired! ~M
