Play Ball!!

In the first 2 months after launching our Diversity & Inclusion / Team Building Program it’s been used by Procter & Gamble, GE Aviation, The Cincinnati Reds Urban Youth Academy and HS’s and Middle Schools. Lauren Meyer (filmmaker/director) was also invited to be part of a program at the National Center for Civil and Human Rights.

We are excited to be bringing The Other Boys of Summer to the Negro League Baseball Museum in April where it will be part of the Jazz & Jackie Celebration. There will be a FREE community screening at the GEM theater in KC on Sunday, April 14. Additional programs are booked for the coming months. We’re always happy to share information about how to bring the program to your group, organization or community. Proud to be bringing people together and inspiring people.

Happy Summer!

Over the past few months we’ve shot for AP/Invision Agency, Eastern TV, Pilgrim Media and a few very exciting development projects for various companies. We’re currently prepping “The Other Boys of Summer” for color correction.  The big push is to lock in distribution and sponsorship partners.  Reach out if you’re interested in finding out more or joining the team.  It’s a timely project that hits a Home Run with social responsibility.

Cicely Tyson

Earlier this week Lauren spent the afternoon with Cicely Tyson. She joined us in the recording booth for “The Other Boys of Summer”.  As a civil rights icon herself, having her as our Narrator is dream come true.  She was as lovely as can be and a consummate professional. Thank you Miss Tyson for choosing to be a part of our film. Together we will preserve the legacy of the Negro League trailblazers and bring people together to make a positive impact.

MLK Jr. Day

Feels appropriate that we launched our kickstarter campaign for “The Other Boys of Summer” today!  Let’s be kind to one another and always fight for equality.

The Other Boys of Summer coming soon….

Don’t miss the chance to impact civil rights and preserve the legacy of the Negro League baseball players.  Most people aren’t aware that Jackie Robinson stepped on the field for the Brooklyn Dodgers before Rosa Parks, Brown vs. The Board of Education and the march from Selma to Montgomery.  When Jackie broke the color barrier in 1947, MLK Jr. was still in college.

Let them inspire you!
