We’ve been on a barnstorming tour with our film “The Other Boys of Summer”. We were invited to “The Jazz & Jackie Celebration” put on by The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in KC in April. The LA Times mentioned us as something not to miss.
Program for student athletes on Jackie Robinson Day at the Gem Theater in KC.
From KC we traveled to Dallas where The Texas Rangers invited us to their Youth Academy. We did a free community program sharing the film and following it up with a panel discussion that included Texas Ranger CF, Delino DeSheilds Jr., retired Pitcher, Darren Oliver and Director, Lauren Meyer.
In June we visited Pittsburgh to be part of the Pirates Heritage weekend and also shared our Diversity & Inclusion program with The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (America’s largest health and wellness philanthropy).

The July Calendar includes bringing The Other Boys of Summer to Cleveland for MLB’s All Star Week festivities. The film will be part of The Bridge, a one-day activation on July 6, 2019, curated by the MLB Diversity & Inclusion Department that will “bridge” baseball and culture.
