“Black Magic” – Documentary on racism in professional sports


FYI…just got the word myself…

There will be a great documentary series “Black Magic,” which shows the racism African-American basketball players and coaches encounter on and off the court. Black Magic presented by Russell Athletic Group and State Farm will air commercial free in two parts Sunday and Monday, March 16 and 17, at 9 p.m. (the guide show two different times, but I believe it is at at 6 pm)ET on ESPN.

Directed by award-winning filmmaker Dan Klores and co-produced by Earl Monroe, tells the story of the injustice which characterized the Civil Rights Movement in America, as told through the lives of basketball players and coaches who attended and worked at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). The film is narrated by Academy Award Nominated actor Samuel L. Jackson, jazz great Wynton Marsalis, and New Orleans Hornets star point guard Chris Paul.
