The Mike Glenn Story

There's a new film being made about former NBA player Mike “Stinger” Glenn. Spirit of Love: The Mike Glenn Story from filmmaker Darla Rae shows how friendship and acceptance are a part of his basketball camps for the deaf and hard of hearing. Glenn attended the Georgia School for the Deaf, where his father coached for no salary. Glenn later made it to the NBA where he played for the Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks. Many people in the cast are deaf or hard of hearing and the film will include a great deal of sign language.  Find out more here.
