New Film to Focus on Athletes at the Black Colleges During the Jim Crow Era

ESPN Original Entertainment and Shoot the Moon Productions are collaborating on a four-hour documentary film tentatively titled Black Magic. The film will focus on athletes at black colleges and universities before the civil rights era and on the injustices that they had to endure.

More than 200 hours of interviews have been conducted for the project. The film is expected to be shown on the ESPN cable network next March.
