One year before Jackie Robinson broke the color line in major league baseball in 1947, four black players joined the Browns and Rams to become the first professional football players of African-American descent in the modern era. Here twelve players reflect not only on the violence, segregation, and general hostility that came with being trailblazers, but also on the white players and coaches who supported them.
