Description

Overview:
This is Part 2 of the educational version of the documentary about Carl Erskine, the last of the Brooklyn Dodgers’ storied “Boys of Summer” who had a profound social impact in diversity and inclusion. Carl was witness to Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier in baseball and the beginning of Special Olympics. Part 2 traces Carl’s colorful baseball career during the Golden Age of the sport, including his two no-hitters, World Series strikeout record and five World Series appearances. It also delves deeply into Carl’s relationship with Jackie Robinson, Major League Baseball’s first Black player, and shows how Carl was, according to the nation’s leading expert in diversity in sports, “one of the first white allies.” Produced by Ted Green Films in partnership with the Indiana Historical Society and Special Olympics Indiana, this film shows Carl's life themes of friendship, loyalty, acceptance, inclusion, diginity, leadership, and social change.
