Speaking Appearance

Doc Stull Louis Poster

The Brown Bomber, the Blues Man and the Blast, Sir Francis Drake High Little Theater, San Anselmo, CA, 10:00 AM November 22.

Doc will present for the Port Chicago Naval Magazine National Memorial Legacy Series  “The Brown Bomber,  The Blues and the Blast: Sports, Social Justice and Legacy of Joe Louis and Jackie Robinson in the Armed Forces in WWII” and the music that helped shape American attitudes about race during the WWII years.

More songs were written about Joe Louis than any other athlete in American history. The United States Army was segregated during WWII, but was ultimately desegregated in 1948 – The music was a part of it – bluesman Josh White made an impression on the Roosevelt Administration as well as on a young student at Harvard and later WWII war hero named John F Kennedy. You won’t get this kind of information anywhere else!

    My name is Lucia Loeb, I am a recent graduate of Humboldt State University and I had the honor of working with Doc Stull. I helped to organize and set up for his presentation, “The Brown Bomber the Blues and the Blast” at my alma mater high school, Sir Francis Drake. Doc Stull brought a very unique and multi dimensional flare to his presentation on these historical events. It is not easy to capture an audience of high school students and Stull did marvelous at it. He made the content come alive because of his unique presentation style-combining story-telling with old film and audio clips, dancing, music, etc. I wish that we had more presentations such as Stull’s when i was in high school. I hope that Stull continues to present in his creative style to many different groups and demographics.
