    Chuck Cooper, Jr. Will Discuss His Legendary Father And His Foundation

    in Sports

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley and Coach Karen Hall will interview Chuck Cooper, Jr. Will Discuss His Legendary Father And His Foundation.


    About the Foundation


    The Chuck Cooper Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit dedicated to honoring the legacy of Chuck Cooper by helping further the education of our young people. The mission of The Chuck Cooper Foundation is to continue the legacy of Charles “Chuck” Cooper, the first African-American drafted into the National Basketball Association, by awarding graduate-level scholarships and by providing comprehensive leadership development, professional skills, and opportunities to underserved students.


    As he approached his graduation from Duquesne in 1950 with a bachelor’s degree in education, Cooper signed on with the famed touring all-black Harlem Globetrotters team. On April 25, 1950, Cooper was selected in the second round of the NBA draft by Boston Celtics owner Walter Brown. When an associate pointed out that Cooper was black, Brown answered that he didn’t care whether Cooper was “striped, plaid, or polka dot.”


    The 6-foot, 5-inch, 200-lb. Cooper made his debut with the Celtics on November 1, 1950, and he went on to produce a strong rookie season. He played in 66 games, averaging 9.5 points and 8.5 rebounds per game and sparking a renaissance in the Celtics’ drooping fortunes. Cooper formed bonds with his teammates, including future Celtics great Bob Cousy, with whom he would sometimes go out in the evening to listen to jazz concerts. During his basketball career, in addition to playing with the Celtics, Cooper also played with the Milwaukee Hawks and the Fort Wayne (Indiana) Pistons. While with the Pistons, he played in the 1956 NBA Championship.

    Author William Turner Debuts Murder In Our Midst

    in Books

    William Turner spent his formative years in New England. He was educated in the private, parochial school system, and is presently retired from State Service (State of California), as a Supervisor.


    He has one son (Ontario), and three grandchildren. His grandson is serving in the United States Air Force. His daugher in law Bridgette, is a practicing Pediatrician. William has apsired, so long ago, to be a priest, but felt at the time, he had not been exposed enough to life to walk away and close the monastery door. His subsequent exposure to life sullied him beyond any aspiration to the priesthood. 


    William now lives in Lancaster, California, spending much of his time doing penance, reflecting on his countless errors in judgment. William's penchant for writing mysteries stems from his exposure to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories and those of Agatha Christie. He mentor was Sister Anges Bernard - his high school English teacher.
