“Man­aged by Churchill”: The 1935 Bis­mar­ck, North Dako­ta
team, man­ag­er Neil Churchill front and cen­ter. Future Hall of Fame pitch­ing great Satchel Paige is stand­ing behind him. Bis­mar­ck broke baseball’s col­or bar­ri­er twelve years before Jack­ie Robin­son did it with Brook­lyn in the major leagues. Sir Win­ston,
who deplored seg­re­ga­tion in the U.S. Army dur­ing World War II, would have approved. (Nation­al Pub­lic Radio)
