Out Now: Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf’s Autobiography “In the Blink of an Eye"

NBA legend Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, who played basketball professionally for nine years, has released his autobiography “In the Blink of an Eye.” Abdul-Rauf converted to Islam in 1991 and the book coveres his experiences as a convert, along with other “twists, turns, trials, and triumphs of his life.”

“In the Blink of an Eye” is published by Kaepernick Publishing, founded by activist and former NFL player Colin Kaepernick, who is known for being released by the San Francisco 49ers in 2017 for his refusal to stand for the national anthem as a protest against police brutality. Abdul-Rauf also faced a similar controversy in 1996 and was briefly suspended from the NBA.  This experience features prominently in the book.

Abdul-Rauf said of the book, “I’m deeply honored to work in collaboration with Kaepernick Publishing. … The timing couldn’t be more important than it is now for us to join forces in controlling our  own narratives with the hope that my story, among many more, will continue to inspire future  generations.”
