The African-American Experience in Major League Baseball - Living in Segregated America
The African-American Experience in Major League Baseball - Living in Segregated America

On April 15, 1947, Jackie Robinson became the first African-American to play in a Major League Baseball game. Throughout the next few decades, hundreds of African-American players would follow in his footsteps, overcoming the greatest of odds to play the game that they loved.

The USC Annenberg Institute of Sports, Media & Society is attempting to record these players' historic tales in its "African-American Experience in Major League Baseball" project. The project's goal is to interview the African-American players who played in the 25 years following Jackie Robinson's first game and to record their stories in an online digital library for posterity.

As part of the project, we will regularly be releasing highlights from these interviews, each video focusing on a different subject matter.

In this video, we've gathered players discussing their experiences growing up and living in the segregated South.

Investigating Power and the Future of Truth with Charles Lewis
Investigating Power and the Future of Truth with Charles Lewis

Mortally consequential lies by those in power can take months, years or even decades to discover. That means a public deluded about some of the most important issues of the day until it's too late to do anything meaningful about them. What are the implications for journalism and democracy if citizens don’t have timely, accurate information?

The Encyclopedia of Journalism called American University Professor Charles Lewis “one of the 30 most notable investigative reporters in the U.S. since World War I.” Founder of the Center for Public Integrity, and winner of the PEN USA First Amendment Award for his courage in expanding the reach of investigative journalism, American University professor Charles Lewis is author most recently of 935 Lies: The Future of Truth and the Decline of America's Moral Integrity.
