This week, host Richard Steele gave us an update on the world of Chicago sports with WBEZ Sports correspondent Cheryl Raye Stout and writer for The Daily Southtown and RedEye Chicago Evan F. Moore.
And Richard heard about the life and story of the legend Moses "Fleetwood" Walker, who broke the color barrier in baseball 60 years before Jackie Robinson. Richard talked to Ervin Gardner, Jackie Taylor and Andre Teamer about their play that documents Walker, and a dark moment in his life.
