Oakland, California – December 14, 2022 – Four-Time NBA Champion and Two-Time MVP Stephen Curry is a committed evangelist for education and youth development. A prime example of Curry’s commitment to education and youth development is the creation of his Underrated Book Club with Literati. Each month, Stephen selects stories that highlight “diverse protagonists and social justice issues to inspire his readers to push boundaries.” For the month of December 2022, Stephen and his team have selected the recently released memoir by Roy L. Clay Sr, titled Unstoppable. This groundbreaking memoir tells the amazing life story of the now 93-year-old mathematician, who is referred to by many as “The Godfather of Silicon Valley.”
Mr. Clay, with the assistance of co-author M.H. Jackson, takes readers on a historical and entertaining journey from his time as a young teenager, where his uncanny math skills were used to run the backroom craps game at a pool hall in segregated, rural Missouri in the 1940s, to his rise to Silicon Valley computer technology pioneer and entrepreneur. Before Silicon Valley, there was Roy L. Clay, an African-American, who played an integral role in the growth of programming and the minicomputer era.
Unstoppable, is the inspirational memoir that tells Roy Clay’s unforgettable story of succeeding against the odds, while never forgetting the people who helped him along the way. A true guide for young people who are interested in STEM careers. Clay’s memoir is for lovers of sports, humor, romance and history. It is also a testament to his unstoppable drive, commitment to his wife and family love, and ability to overcome extreme challenges and loss. Clay and Curry are separated by roughly 60 years in age, but both are fierce community advocates and both were underrated and overlooked early in their chosen careers, yet succeeded to become American heroes, due to their unstoppable drive. Unstoppable – The Unlikely Story of a Silicon Valley Godfather, is available in paperback, hardcover and e-book on Amazon.
