Breaking the Lines: The season in black college football that changed everything

It's an evening for books, football, social change, and play: Literary Detroit is partnering with Source Booksellers to celebrate author Samuel G. Freedman, author of "Breaking the Line: The Season in Black College Football that Transformed the Sport and Changed the Course of Civil Rights." PRE-EVENT FOOTBALL FUN - 6:30pm We're meeting at a nearby park for football games: touch, flag, 500, pickle... Come one and all! TRIVIA - 7:30pm Challenge your knowledge of civil rights, the NCAA, Southern colleges, the NFL, and other themes discussed in "Breaking the Line" at our specially-made trivia game at Source Booksellers! We have terrific prizes for five winners, including tickets to Go Comedy Improv Theater, copies of Freedman's book "Letters to a Young Journalist," and more. READING // QUESTIONS - 8pm Freedman will read from "Breaking the Line" (which includes a significant section involving Detroit, by the way). He'll also discuss the book with the audience, as well as the art of narrative nonfiction more broadly.
