By Harold Bell

Location: Q’s Billiards 7945 Central Avenue, District Heights, MD

Date: Sunday October 7th 

Time: 6 pm until 8 pm 

Note:  Coaches and parents bring your young student/athletes to meet a living American sports legend up close and personal.  Co-Hosts Black Men In America.com and Q’s Billiards will raffle off two (2) books to two student/athletes.
Every student/athlete will receive a FREE autographed picture of Harold Bell and his friend, “The Greatest” Muhammad Ali.  This is a rare photograph.  2019 will mark the 45th anniversary of the historic “Rumble in the Jungle,” Heavyweight Championship fight with the then undisputed and unbeaten Heavyweight Champion “Big George Foreman.”  Ali shocked the world when he knocked out George in the 8th round. It cemented his legendary status as “The Greatest.”
When Muhammad Ali returned to the United States from Zaire, every media outlet was fighting for an interview with the newly crowned Heavyweight Champion.   Everyone assumed that legendary broadcaster Howard Cosell and “ABC Wide World of Sports,” would get the interview.  Think again.
Ali shocked the world by calling Harold Bell, making him the first person to be granted an interview when he returned to the United States. You can watch a “sneak preview” of Harold’s exclusive one-on-one interview with “The Greatest,” Muhammad Ali.

Here’s what people are saying about Harold Bell’s new book, “My Walk Through Sports History with Champs & Chumps”

Harold:  Just finished reading your book.  Thanks for the honorable mention in your dedication section.  I really enjoyed reading the book.  There are not too many people on this planet who get to have their life’s work memorialized in such a beautiful and attractive book.  Dr. Harry Edwards was right, “Your work was a major force over the years especially in terms of the struggle to define and project Our Truth.”  I hope that you will think about teaching at a local university or college.  There are a lot of bright-eyed and bushy tailed journalism and communications students who would love to receive your direction and guidance.  In addition to what you give the students, the joy and satisfaction you would receive from seeing their faces light up when they understand a point you are making is immeasurable.

“If you get a chance to meet a living legend who is known by the “who’s who” in sports, broadcasting, politics, civil rights and philanthropy, that’s a once in a lifetime opportunity.  If you get a chance to work closely with that individual, you are truly blessed.  Harold Bell is a “truth teller,” from Washington, DC.  He has touched the lives of thousands and mentored many of this nation’s black broadcasters, writers and sports personalities.  “My World Through Sports History with Champs & Chumps,” is a book that tells it’s story through photographs.  Harold Bell’s personal archives is “museum-worthy” and he has it on full display in this book covering over 50 years of history, tragedy and personal triumph.  And through it all, he’s still standing, with a lot more to give.”

    Good people always thrive, Advise those they see that have potential that is why its nice to know I know a few like you HBell.

  2. What a read! This is the book that you have to have on your shelves. This book walks you through the life of Harold Bell’s journey, an activist and world changer. The book depicts black history in its realest form and provides illustrations that are relevant and personal. If you haven’t already, you must get it!

    Harold Bell has been an activist for the under privileged black community for a long time. He has championed causes and been a voice to the voiceless for at least 5 decades. He has withstood the punches of the political arena and yet he still stands. Thank God for finally allowing him to complete this work and we pray that God will bless all of his future endeavors.
    Best of luck,

    Outstanding book, One of a kind and should be on every coffee table in America.

  10. Lots of good memories here, especially for those who listened to Harold Bell on the radio or watched his specials on TV in D.C. He’s interviewed them all, from the bottom to the top. This is a great addition for anyone’s home library.
