Paige, Baseball, Civil Rights: the lecture

Satchel Paige—the third African-American to desegregate major league baseball at the remarkable age of 42—remains a American icon. His fascinating life and legacy will be explored by his biographer Dr. Donald Spivey of the University of Miami, on April 1 (Doudna Lecture Hall, 7pm). Dr. Spivey’s talk is entitled “Satchel Paige and Black Baseball in the Rethinking of the Civil Rights Movement.” The talk is part of the Barry D. Riccio Lecture Series.
