Airing on CARPE DIEM March 17th-21st, 2014
Celebrated sports columnist Jerry Isenberg once said…” For roughly a century, hiding behind a Jim Crow curtain, white America was rarely forced to admit how good black players were to say nothing of barring them from the game. But a scholar who loved baseball did more in his way than Branch Rickey to make this country see the truth and learn how insignificant skin color is when sorting the mundane players from the heroes.”
His name is Dr. Larry Hogan and his body of work deserves a place next to Jackie Robinson and Larry Doby when it comes to telling America’s real baseball history. The recent publication of his book, The Forgotten History of African American Baseball, is the latest in a magnificent effort to educate America in lessons it needs to learn.
This episode was produced and hosted by Larry Londino, a professor from the School of Communication and Media and directed by TVDM major, Weaam Ali.
