Join the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum (NLBM) for a public screening of the new film Long Time Coming. Long Time Coming recounts the story of one of the first integrated Little League championship games, in Orlando, Florida, in 1955. The story is told through the eyes of the surviving players, now in their 70’s, along with notables such as baseball stars Hank Aaron, Cal Ripken, Jr., and Ambassador Andrew Young. The film has been produced by the Edward E. Haddock, Jr. Family Foundation, with the intent of encouraging positive, healing conversations around race relations.
The event is free to attend, but seating is limited. You must RSVP through Eventbrite https://nlbm-longtimefilm.eventbrite.com or call the NLBM at 816-221-1920.
