Did you know: one year before Jackie Robinson and Branch Rickey broke Major League Baseball’s color barrier, four men did the same in pro football, and two of them HAVE YET TO BE INDUCTED into the Pro Football Hall of Fame? Want to know more?
The powerful EPIX original documentary, ‘Forgotten Four: The Integration of Pro Football,’ tells the little-known story of four outstanding and brave African American men – Kenny Washington, Woody Strode, Marion Motley and Bill Willis – who broke the color barrier in pro football in 1946. The hardships and triumphs of the Forgotten Four are told through the recollections of their families and those who have researched these remarkable pioneers.
Let’s support the premiere and campaign to get Kenny Washington and Woody Strode, the two players not currently in the Hall of Fame, nominated for membership.
