On April 14, 2007, the eve of the 60th anniversary of
Jackie Robinson breaking Major League Baseball's color
barrier, WCBE 90.5-FM, central Ohio's most listened
to NPR station, broadcast this retrospective on the
life and legacy of the great baseball and civil rights
This special radio program, written
and produced by Enteje's Jack Marchbanks and Sidney
Howard, remembered Robinson through the musings of Negro
League players, among others, and the music of the "Jackie
Robinson Years" (1947 to 1956). It received very favorable
reviews from WCBE's audience.

or want to listen again, hear it here.
