showtime_logoTwo decades after Jackie Robinson broke pro baseball’s color line the NFL still had no black quarterbacks, even as African Americans excelled at every other position on the field. It was pro-football’s open secret: the quarterback position was for whites only. A handful of pioneers began to change this in 1968 and four of them tell their humiliating and often emotional stories to Armen Keteyian about an unpopular chapter in the history of America’s most popular sport. Keteyian also talks to the black QBs of the 1980s and ’90s, whose paths were paved by those pioneers in this rarely told story.
