He was an outspoken leader of a new wave of civil rights in sports, when black athletes were no longer content to accept second-class treatment or keep their mouths shut about indignities. This will be the first time his legend – and the story of the man behind it – will be told in a feature-length documentary. (509) 209-2383. Admission: $8
