Screening of A Long Way from Home: The Untold Story of Baseball’s Desegregation
The documentary features original, revealing interviews with James “Mudcat” Grant, Grover “Deacon” Jones, Jimmy Wynn, J.R. Richard, Tony Pérez and Orlando Cepeda. These former MLB stars endured challenges linked to racism on and off the field to pursue their big-league dreams – and in doing so, played a significant (and, until now, underappreciated) role in making America’s pastime truly open to all.
