Baseball & the Civil Rights Movement Roundtable Discussion was developed as a platform to stimulate open dialogue surrounding baseball's role in challenging the racial intolerance that was once a norm in our society.
Each year this roundtable is moderated by Harvard Law Professor, Charles Ogletree. Come take part in a thought-provoking, heart-wrenching and inspiring discussion on the civil rights movement.
