Mr. Rickey Calls A Meeting by Ed Schmidt (Audio)

Mr. Rickey Calls a Meeting - Ed Schmidt, Edward Asner, Carl Lumbly

A performance by L.A. Theatre Works about signing Jackie Robinson to the major leagues. This audiobook was free during Black History Month.

 

In attendance at this meeting were Mr. Branch Rickey, baseball coach. Mr. Paul Robeson, singer, actor, communist, and activist. Mr. Jackie Robinson, of course, and Joe Lewis, boxer.

 

This was an interesting peek behind the scenes at baseball, black history and indeed, American History. The performances were outstanding.

 

I highly recommend this audiobook for anyone and everyone.
