Jump: My Secret Journey from the Streets to the Boardroom
One of the most successful Black businessmen in the country, who has led Nike’s Jordan Brand from a $200M sneaker company to a $4B global apparel juggernaut, tells the remarkable story of his rise from gangland violence to the pinnacles of international business.
Jump shares Larry Miller’s journey from the violent streets of West Philly in the 1960s to the highest echelons of American sports and industry. Miller wound up in jail more than once, especially as a teenager. But he immersed himself in educational opportunities, eventually taking advantage of a Pennsylvania state education-release program offered to incarcerated people, and was able to graduate with honors from Temple University.
