Something All His Own: The NBA's Grant Hill Hopes His Collection of African American Art Will Inspire, Excite a Younger Generation
Keels, Crystal L.
Black Issues in Higher Education, v21 n21 p29 Dec 2004
NBA star Grant Hill is known for his skills on the basketball court, his marriage to Grammy award-winning singer, Tamia, and, most recently, for his courageous comeback after several surgeries that jeopardized his professional basketball career. Yet, Hill's off-the-court activities currently are being considered as exemplary as his athletic performances. "Something All Our Own: The Grant Hill Collection of African American Art," the 46-piece personal collection of paintings, sculptures and prints currently touring the nation, has gained center court attention in the art and educational arenas.
