"In 1950, three years after Jackie Robinson first strode across the baseball diamond, Earl Lloyd became the first black man to play in the NBA . . . . Moonfixer, Earl Lloyd’s first-person account of his life, reads like a good talk with your grandfather: It teaches you a lot of historical lessons [and] makes you want to hear more."—Slam Magazine

"Lloyd is a trailblazing figure, often overlooked for his contribution to basketball and more. He was the first African-American to play in the NBA, suiting up for the Washington Capitols for the 1950 season."—New York Post

"Lloyd’s book is about life lessons, the value of education, family and community footprints, and the human spirit faced with daunting social challenges."—Michigan Chronicle
