In 1976, Aulcie Perry, a gifted black athlete from Newark, was recruited by the Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball team and helped lead them to their first historic European Cup championship, putting Israel, as his teammate and fellow Jerseyan Tal Brody claimed, “on the map.” After converting to Judaism and becoming an Israeli citizen, Perry reveled in the adulation of his new country — but soon took a turn onto a self-destructive path. He paid dearly for his mistakes and made a valiant attempt to redeem himself.
