However, professional football has an even longer history of racial integration that saw Fritz Pollard become the first black player and coach in the 1920s. The story of Pollard and the few brave African-American souls who followed him are charted in this documentary, which focuses on four players appearing for the Los Angeles Rama and the Cleveland Browns in the 1940s.
