Synopsis:


When racial segregation defined the South, two groups of twelve-year-old boys stepped onto a baseball field in a non-violent act of cultural defiance that would change the course of history. More than 60 years later, team captains Will Preyer (Pensacola) and Stewart Hall (Orlando) embark on personal journeys back to the game in 1955 and find that forgotten event becomes a bridge to embracing the turbulence of today’s social landscape. In 1955, Jackie Robinson had broken the Major League color barrier eight years earlier, but segregation still prevailed. Our future hinged upon local Southern communities to either embrace Robinson’s pioneering efforts, to redouble its longstanding commitment to segregation, or to remain quietly complicit in a system of racial inequality. Florida’s 1955 Little League State Championship represents a shining moment in our nation’s history when children led us all towards a better way.
