Coach Ken Carter

Coach Ken Carter

Coach; Author; Educator; Inspiration for the Film, "Coach Carter"
FEE RANGE: Inquire [FEE NOTE]
TRAVELS FROM: Texas
Famed basketball coach Ken Carter sent a powerful message when he literally locked his undefeated, state play-off bound team out of the gym and forced them to hit the books and stop counting on athletic potential as the only ticket out of a tough, inner city life. The film, "Coach Carter," based on the lock-out, is just one more testimony to the strength of his convictions. Carter had a monumental task at hand: the students were failing academically and the athletic programs were in a pathetic state. Within two years, he had virtually single-handedly turned around the school, physically and mentally cleaning house. At the podium, Coach Carter scores with hard-hitting advice about accountability, integrity, teamwork and leadership. He is the founder and chairman of the Coach Ken Carter Foundation, a non-profit organization that develops, promotes and provides education, training and mentoring programs for African-American youths.
