Paul Robeson Malcolm X Academy varsity boys basketball team, lead by Head Coach Terrell George, received the Spirit of Detroit Award on April 12, 2016, presented by the Detroit City Council. The team received the award for their back-to-back championship wins.

Due to handwork, dedication and teamwork, the young men not only won the championship title but also continue to succeed academically. The majority of the team members are eighth grade students who have been accepted to the top three high schools in the district.

Congratulations Coach George and Paul Robeson Malcolm X Academy athletes!
