    Ep. 25 - Producer Brian Winett Discusses the Negro Leagues

    in Television

    The research process continues with the 25th installment of the Bedford & Sullivan Podcast!
    I realized recently I was sorely lacking on my research of not only the Negro Leagues in Brooklyn, but Black American history in Brooklyn overall. Producer Brian Winett has been working on developing a TV Series regarding the Negro Leagues, and though his project is not at all Brooklyn-centric, he has gathered plenty of fascinating material regarding the rich history of Black baseball before integration.
    We'll discuss his personal baseball roots, what attracted him to the subject of the Negro Leagues, and the character of Rube Foster (the Negro Leagues pioneer). We'll also talk some shop, discussing what the narrative script writing process is like for Brian.
    So, join us at 3PM ET for the latest edition of the Bedford & Sullivan Podcast!

    Ledgendary Negro Leagues Baseball Larry LeGrande Live

    in Baseball

     Ledgendary Negro league baseball player  Larry LeGrande : At the age of fourteen, Larry was anchored behind the plate for the local Webster All-Stars. In the spring of 1957, the Memphis Red Sox and the Birmingham Black Barons played a game in Salem, Virginia. His decision to go had really been made a long time before this - one more summer in the hog pens would be unbearable. In 1958 LeGrande joined the line-up of the Detroit Stars owner and fellow NLB Living Legend (remembered) Ted Rasberry. He was mostly a catcher, however, sometimes he played a little right field. The Kansas City Monarchs organization, also owned by Mr. Rasberry, brought Larry into town in 1959 where he caught for the legendary Satchel Paige. Later that season, LeGrande was called upon to play for the Yankees in the Florida State (minor) League. He was released later that same season and returned to the Kansas City Monarchs. As the 1961 season came around, Larry decided to barnstorm the countryside with his good friend Satchel Paige and his Satchel Paige All-Stars. They knocked down the miles and the teams they challenged along the way, from Nebraska through Wyoming and back to Kansas City.Career: 1957-1959..Positions: c, ofTeams: Memphis Red Sox, Detroit Stars, Kansas City Monarchs  Born: May 25, 1939, Roanoke, Virginia Baseball Career Highlights:I hit .300 three consecutive years (1957-1959), led the Negro Leagues in outfield assists (1958-1959) I travel to baseball shows with 'Yesterday's Stars', and play in charity golf tournaments. I played three years in the "Hank Aaron Charity Tournament. As a Negro Leagues player, I was chosen by Satchel Paige to play on his All-Star team. More recently, I was honored by the Salem Historical Society."Source: NLBM Legacy 2000 Players' Reunion Alumni Book, Kansas City Missouri: Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, Inc., 2000. contact:caribbeanradioshow@gmail.com call - 661-467-2407

    Was Justice Taney's decision that stated that Dred Scott (or any so-called "negro") had "No Rights Which the White Man was Bound to Respect" an actual fact?
    Was Justice Taney's decision an actual law?
    Was this ruling ever overturned?
    What did the dissenting justices have to say about the decision?

    What did Prophet Noble Drew Ali mean when he stated that the 14th and 15th amendment was not necessary for our salvation?
    Was the 14th amendment properly ratified or not? Debunking the conspiracy theorists.
    Is there a such thing as a 14th amendment citizen?
    Did the 14th amendment redefine humans as persons and was this designation solely given to corporations?
