Willie O’Ree integrated the National Hockey League, and 50 years later he is still making a difference.

I had an opportunity to spend a full day with Willie O’Ree the living legend, and you can see the editorial and video here: GAME TIME with AG.



The most known unknown.

    Great work AXG! The only way these stories are going to get out is if Black writers dig in deep like you did here. Until the collective understands this, they have no reason to complain.

  7. I agree 100% Mizzo, remember when Smokey the Bear used to say, “Only you can prevent forrest fires.” Same rings true for the black journalist. Its up to us!
