No journalist was closer to baseball legend Hank Aaron than Terence Moore '78. He discusses his recently published book "The Real Hank Aaron: An Intimate Look At The Home Run King." Among other things, the book describes how Terence used the lessons of Jackie Robinson and his association with Aaron to spend decades overcoming the racism he encountered as a trailblazing Black sports journalist.

Terence Moore '78, is an American sports journalist based in Atlanta. He has appeared on national and local television, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, and various ESPN shows, most prominently "Outside The Line." He was a frequent guest on ESPN's Jim Rome Is Burning. Terence previously spent 25 years as a sports columnist for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution after beginning his sports writing career at the Miami Student. Terence's new book, The Real Hank Aaron: An Intimate Look at the Life and Legacy of the Home Run King will be released in May.
