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!
