New Jersey Native Helps Bring "Forgotten" NFL Story To TV

New Jersey Native Helps Bring
BY JERRY MILANI
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

As the NFL takes its share of hits this week in the press, a positive story of change is about to hit audiences nationwide that tells a pretty remarkable and largely unknown tale, of the four African Americans who broke the color barrier in pro football the year before Jackie Robinson broke it in baseball.

The film is called “Forgotten Four,” and it chronicles the story of four players - Marion Motley and Bill Willis of the Cleveland Browns and Woody Strode and Kenny Washington of the Los Angeles Rams; who integrated pro football in 1946. Produced by sports film legend Ross Greenburg, the hour long film will air on EPIX on September 23 nationwide, in conjunction with the NFL. However without a New Jersey native who is co-producer the story may have never come about.
