Historically Black Colleges' Contributions to the NFL with Dr. Derrick E. White
"On this week's program historically black colleges and universities and the NFL with Doctor Derrick white in black America in their celebration of the hundred year. It was not as historical as we would like right. I think the for better for worse college football who celebrate the One hundred fiftieth year and in conjunction with ESPN primarily. Done these series of documentaries. That kind of documenting the game so they did a great set of talking about the early game when the Ivy Leagues Dominated College Football. Right you get that kind of Astaldi. Nfl is not so much right. In their part of Wigan's law says that the integration the reintegration of the. Nfl in part is done. Because you know teams WanNa move to the West Coast Right. They WanNa play in Los Angeles And that the black community the La said no in particular forced the L. A. Don's to say if you WANNA come in you. GotTa you gotTa desegregate Your Team. So woody strode gets an opportunity to play and Kenny Washington gets a chance to try out for these teams and they make these teams in the NFL so we were talking about the kind of reintegration of of professional football as the National Football League celebrated. Its first one hundred seasons unbeknownst to many sports fans the NFL didn't have any African American players for decade from Nineteen thirty four to nineteen forty-six. There was an unspoken agreement between owners to ban African American players today. They are two African American general managers for minority head coaches and one chief operating officer for the first time the crew for sue both fifty four had a record number of minority officials of the seven on the field five for African Americans the contribution of historical black colleges and universities. Acc use to the NFL has changed the game forever undrafted by an NFL team. Paul tank younger was the first African American player from grambling State University to play in the NFL when he signed with the Los Angeles Rams in nineteen forty nine the first African American drafted in the NFL draft was jaws rooks. I running back out of Morgan state in the Eleventh Round. One hundred and twenty fifth overall by the Green Bay packers in nineteen fifty one doing super bowl fifty four week in south Florida Group of area high school athletes had an opportunity to learn about the rich history of black college football and his contributions to the NFL and Black America spoke with doctor. Derrick wide associate professor at the University of Kentucky. When I was teaching a class on sports history I found that the students knew nothing about historically black college role. They were as part of their assignment. They had researched The histories of sports history at various institutions and students had cookman in Florida. And I knew that those are really successful. Athletic programs and students came back with nothing. And so I've you know I just thought chalked up. Initially students being students that they just didn't do enough but when we both begin system. I realized there was a huge gap in the scholarship. And there's a Lotta work on sports. History is a lot of work on college sports especially college football but there was very little nearly nothing on historically black colleges And so at the time I was at Florida Atlantic in so I was like Bam. You is like right up the road. Well you know eight hours away from my house but I and I knew Jay. Gator was dominant. I'd heard these stories from my uncles and I knew he was a fantastic program so I did a research trip and I went up there and they have the archivists there. And the the library's at up in Florida were amazing and they gave me these materials in there. All these letters documents and so I had budgets and letters of professional teams and I begin to understand how he organized his football program because the issue is discussed our Pamela Day. That there wasn't a lot of research money. A lot of research recruiting money not money budgets. Within Coach Gate. There was the ad coach basketball at one point. And those things. I thought those kinds of stories and that the greatness that the success that he was able to produce was Willie Gallimore Kim. Rowley Bob Hayes. I wanted to understand how that was done. I didn't WANNA chalk it up to that. These were just natural athletes that there was something being done happening on these institutions in some coaches Were better than others and so I wanted to tell that story talk about. Integration Immigration had a positive effect but it also had a devastating effect on also African Americans going to the NFL right so an integration was boom for professional football. Right then you know one of the reasons that Jake was so able to be so successful especially early on in the forties and early fifties that many of his former players gather degrees and became teachers in the high schools. All across the State of Florida and North Georgia. And so he would. They would just send him letters. Like hey coach gay. Got This really. Good kid this Willie Gallimore guys pretty good right. Like this is how he got recruiting information was from his former players but those players were talented but there was no professional football opportunities and so when those opportunities really begin to open up a specially after nineteen sixty when the AFL comes in then professional football now creates a new opportunity for black colleges in small colleges in general and so that becomes this boom and on the backside that the course the civil rights movement is happening at this exact same time right so brown. V Board of Education. This is entire push to desegregate schools Whether the high school level colleges etc and so so many ways why colleges Kinda caught between their own. Their success right. They're producing these great players in the NFL. Minium all pros as we talked about earlier. Thirty two or in the NFL Hall of fame at the same time. There are new opportunities at Florida. Miami or Georgia and that these schools especially in the deep south are slowly trying to recruit them when you look back at the history of ACC using his contribution to to the NFL. I found it amazing and the one hundred year the League. There's very little that has been articulated about a SPEC- US or the early African American players and they and their celebration of the hundredth year. It was not as historical as we would like right. I think the you know for better for Worse College Football who celebrated his Hundred Fiftieth Year and in conjunction with ESPN primarily. Done these series of documentaries that kind of documenting the game so they did a great set of documentaries talking about the early game when the Ivy League dominated college football. Right you get that kind of Nfl is not so much

"And it was one that I had to force myself to watch because I didn't wanna believe the critics. But you know, what they were totally right. Okay, perry. What's next? So this last one I wanted to put this on my list because I feel like anytime I find a new director that I want to get out there into the world and everybody to know her name, even though I'm not even sure I'm pronouncing it right still I had to put revenge on my list. And if you have a shudder subscription, you can go watch it there right now. But this movie was a really I I can't even call it a pleasant. Well, it's not pleasant. But it wasn't a surprise to me because everyone had been talking this movie up, and it took me so frigging long to watch it. And then Finally, I did and corley Faraday believe that's how her name is pronounced is the director behind it. And this is a movie with a whole it's a very violent movie with a whole bunch of very brutal set pieces with some exceptional kill scenes, exceptional makeup effects. But it's not just about that. You could look at this movie and see her style just all over. There's no doubt in my mind that nobody could have directed this story the same exact way as she does. And it just seems to me like if she puts that same precision and even respect for her characters to any other story out there. We're going to end up with even more great films from her not seen this movie. And is what's on that flex available on shudder right now shutter all shut streaming treating. Okay. Good. I'm going to take your advice, and this home to the manses jerking to bring home you might wanna push pas. Kind of movie, but I've recommended this Astaldi to the number offs on the A right? bit of a different thing. Pirate person Mathilde. This is like the perfect for the metoo era, by the way. Filmmaking is fantastic and those earrings her costume. I it's one of the most iconic costumes of the year for me those earrings. I would be able to tell you what movie they were. Okay. Wow. Yeah. I could see now. Okay. What's next year? Jeff, we this is our last one, right? More often, I guess number one for me, the most underrated movie the year as I tweeted earlier in the week America animals about. Barton's American animals was just a movie I saw more than any other this year. I think four or five times everyone I've shown it to has dug it it's about four kids who rob their college library of some rare books, but the way that it is presented and the mix of actors, and then the actual real people that they're playing interacting with each other in certain scenes and the way that plays with like unrelenting unreliable narrators that kind of stuff the editing in the movie is fantastic. There's such precision. It's it's just like you feel the cuts. I love everything about it. So please if you do if you if you watch one more movie before twenty eighteen ends making American animals if you don't like it. I will send you something in the mail to make up for the last two hours. That's how Jeff Slater guarantee. This guy is absolutely American animals is absolutely fantastic. It is absolutely been overlooked. It was at Sundance. I think it started. I actually didn't see at Sundance, but I did see after after September. And I completely agree. I think it is. It's a great heist movie, especially when nice goes wrong. Recommended it. So many times I will say the Jeff Snyder guarantee it held up there just guarantee if there is such a thing. Use it very sparingly. I don't that doesn't come out there. Let's your choice, Aaron tease your choices on this overlooked for your consideration special happened right on the money both of yours. My final movie, I think the final move to talk about is the old man and the gun overbook to the extent date. It's been overlooked..

Like when you're rooting for Cardi B to get off a loving hip. Hop get rich and be a fashion icon and all this shit. And she continues to do it.

"As a as a kid. Let's move onto flash. Gordon? A franchise that helped inspire Star Wars. Let's seems like a new movie is in the works from the director of overlord then tells about it. Yeah, that's pretty much. All we know at this point, Julius Avery the guy who's directing the World War Two horror movie overlord, which comes out very soon. I think next week or maybe in two weeks is apparently he pitched paramount his take on the character of flash, Gordon, and they really liked the idea and decided to give him the directing job for a flash Gordon movie. Matthew Vaughn was going to be directing this movie once upon a time he apparently is still on board as a producer? So I haven't seen overlord yet. And I don't know Julius Avery's work that well, but a flash Gordon is a character that I mean, the nineteen eighty movie is probably the most famous interational of him. I don't know if he has seen that movie recently, but it holds up pretty well because it's so silly and campy and fun that it. It makes it sort of timeless. I was reading a little bit about it. And I guess it was produced by or at least presented by one of the same people who was working on the nineteen sixties Batman TV show, and sort of in the same way that that show has like a. An Astaldi sort of kitsch to it that that still. You know, it's of its time certainly, but it makes it's different than like being completely drenched in like a dark and gritty super self serious. Kind of thing flash. Gordon is not that at all. I'm hoping that Julius Avery is not going to take the character in that that kind of direction. But if he gets something that that is approximating the nineteen eighty film, which was directed by Mike Hodges and had this amazing soundtrack by Queen. Then. Yeah..

I think the question really is whether he's getting to be a mold breaker or a big change in terms of what he actually does when he's in power. And I think there it's a little bit more dubious. You know, he's a Pashtoon, but he's brought up in the hor- privileged family and he's gonna face exactly the same problems that other governments civilian governments have faced in the past very heavy corruption. Of course, he's talked about being anti corruption campaigner, and that's something that may set him apart from his predecessors, but his other economic policies necessarily that different from what other people said they're gonna do get to reform the some of the state-owned enterprises. He's gonna widen the tax, these things urgently needed. He's going to develop tourism, which is setting a very tough loss in a place like Pakistan. But I do think he's going to come up against executive the same problems that his predecessors have come up against. And that is essentially the all me whether or not the army pushed him into. Pau or not. And that's what he's opponent. Suspect. They clearly remain incredibly influential. They see the large amount of the of the budget of the state for themselves, and it just narrows the space in which civilian politicians like him can actually operate in. And I think that is going to be a challenge and we're really looking at quite a severe economic crisis. I mean, there's a very severe foreign exchange crisis that he the next government is going to have to do with really in a matter of weeks. Before we go into some of those crunchy issues that victor's raised about the economy about the army, just give us a sense of Imran's personal journey because I think that the yours, many people in Britain because I guess that heard of him as a famous cricketer assume that he would sweep to power, but actually it's taken literally decades, hasn't it since he returned as a kind of semi playboy celebrity, it has. So he says up his party's, the PTI, which means movement for Justice. He set up in nineteen Ninety-six promising to sweep aside pucks, don's endemic corruption, and it's taken him until now to get anywhere close to power. It looked like he was going to break through in twenty thirteen when he toured the country just before that election and was gathering crowds of up to one hundred thousand people. I think what became clear after that election when he came at distant third, is that a lot of those crowds that just to see the man who led the puck istani cricket team to the well Cup in nineteen Ninety-two and be what has been his consistent problem input. Takes is the puck Astaldi politics is dominated by so-called barrage links. These kind of clan. Family ties, which mean that happens is that for local politicians will do deals with heads of plans to make sure that everybody within that network invites the same way..

"I'm really, really excited to be joined today by writer director, Bo, Burnham, and star Elsie Fisher. They have a new movie coming out called eighth grade. It's a wonderful movie that I've seen twice guys. Thanks for coming in. Thanks for having us before we get to even in the movie Elsie. Is this your first podcast? No, I've done a couple man Elsie heads her own, plug it right here. Dungeons and dragons podcast episode just out. I haven't given to listen. Yep, Mike, you better because you're going to be on it. Oh boy. Show extreme DND, but also extremists spelled with an x. hyphen trim. It's pretty cool, very cool. Say so, listen, this Pakistan, nearly extreme Elsie Fisher guys. I wanna talk about great. That's why you're here. Don't do it. Okay, bullets are with you. This movie about a young girl and you're not a young girl. That's it. Obviously, there's a lot of this character. Why did you decide to make a movie about a young girl in eighth grade? Couple reasons I watched. I was watching a lot of videos, a young kids online talking about themselves. The boys talked about fortnight and the girls talked about their souls does like k. girl. I think the other really was like, I didn't wanna make an Astaldi movie. I I like nostalgic movies, but I didn't want this to be like a memory or an exploration of my past experience. I wanted to feel current. So it being a girl sort of insulated me from from a project, my own experience onto our because it might might might disconnect is twofold. I was never thirteen year old girl and I was never. A thirteen year old. Now, you know, in both of those things, I think when themselves to us specific experience of the hope is to just like approach it, like I don't know what she's going through, but I feel what she's feeling. Did you have any concern about the generation gap that you have from the character you were writing? Totally, I mean, but it was. It was more just like I wasn't writing a novel is making a movie, so I knew I was going to work with the kids and I'd have the kids to tell me if I was off base or not. I wrote a bunch of DM's for heard where she was on Facebook, and then she read the script and was like, no one uses Facebook anymore is about my aunt and I was like, whoops. And then so actually PETA kids say no and uses Facebook anymore in descript and all face was changed. Instagram's. Amazing, Elsie. When did you first become aware of this movie? I went to the first audition, really, and that was that was a while ago the the first audition was the opening monologue. And I'm like, this character talks like I do, so I got really excited, and also I was huge fan of Bose. Oh, about his work? Yeah. What was that like? Meeting him in this context, it will weird. My face was just read. I got embarrassed or the first thing she did when she read the, she's like, the first thing is like, hey, guys, Kayla and she said, hey, guys, she knocked the script offer loud and and I was like. Good thing. I loved about the auditions like he was just like he was chill, and he was nice, and he was like willing to work with me, I guess, whereas a lot of dishes, if I had done that, they'd be like, get out, which is just because she's so open and we wanted to do the story of being young as being in articulate and a little all over the place. And so a lot of young actress try so hard to polish everything about themselves. So they come in like sounding like what they think kids are like in movies, which are like little poet laureates remember and else's. Just able to kinda be free, which is a very tough thing for an actor to be how many actors did you see a lot a lot, dozens and dozens, one hundred or so the c. audition instantaneous. Yeah, yeah, pretty pretty instantly that I saw. I tested her seven times only saw. I never saw Kidman once as a young actress. I don't actually know what it's like for somebody in your position. Do you get sent a lot of scripts?.
