THE LIFE AND TIMES OF HANK GREENBERG
In person: filmmaker Aviva Kempner
This Peabody Award-winning film is a humorous and nostalgic documentary about an extraordinary baseball player who transcended religious prejudice to become an American icon. Hammerin' Hank's accomplishments for the Detroit Tigers during the Golden Age of Baseball rivaled those of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. America's first Jewish baseball star was a beacon of hope to American Jews who faced bigotry during the Depression and World War II. (Courtesy of Aviva Kempner.)
