    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

  • NATIONALITY, BIRTHRIGHT AND THE NEGRO FACTOR: PART 3

    in Spirituality

          NEGROES, BLACKS & COLORED: The DRED SCOTT vs. SANDFORD decision was supposedly superseded by another decision named the Slaughter House case(s) and eventually by the 14th Amendment. However, this is not true, the Slaughter House case(s) simply provided safe guards and the 14th Amendment was never fully ratified; hence, leaving us in limbo once again or rather back to square one about out Citizenship. How are we not Citizens in our own land? (Note: The Constitution for the united States of America, the Constitution of the United States of America and the U.S. Constitution; all have been hijacked as the supreme law of the land and the UCC [Uniform Commercial Code] now superseded it. The UCC [Uniform Commercial Code] is Admiralty Law, which ultimately leads to Colorable Law or Color of Law, meaning, the appearance or semblance, without the substance, of legal right. State vs. Brechler, 185 Wis. 599, 202 N.W. 144, 148).


        You have to use the Treaties, because the 13th and the 14th Amendment did not help us. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 did not help us. None of these so-called Rights (“Act” of “privileges”) help us. Our people are still classified under the Negro Act of 1740 (Note: “WEBSTER’S DICTIONARY” definition). Therefore, we must be recognized as human being (not in the since of the Jews [Goyim]) first with Human Rights tied to Indigenous Rights.
