FEATURES / CONTAINS

Interior Set

Joe Louis, Paul Robeson, Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, Jackie Robinson, and Brooklyn Dodgers owner Branch Rickey meet in 1947 to discuss a strategy for dropping a baseball bombshell: promoting a black to the major leagues. That is the premise of this brilliant and timely play. Issues raised include compensation for the possible demise of the Negro leagues and the advisability of one at a time integration. If you want freedom of opportunity, do you play by the white's rules or do you demand that he play by yours?
