Doc’s Radio Appearance

Doc will be on KHSU 90.5 FM Bounce Me Brother (with Dr. Boogie), 8:00 PM November 13.

In the second hour Doc and Dr. Boogie will talk about about Doc’s upcoming presentation for the
Port Chicago Naval Magazine National Memorial Legacy Series entitled “The Brown Bomber, The Blues and the Blast: Sports, Social Justice and Legacy of Joe Louis and Jackie Robinson in 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.
