This Land Press: Porter Reed – In the Negro Leagues
Porter Reed is one of two former Negro League baseball players still alive today in Oklahoma. Here, he talks about growing up in the sandlots of Muskogee, Oklahoma, and life as a black athlete in a segregated America.
LANGUAGE ADVISORY: Mr. Reed uses a racial slur multiple times to describe the way others spoke to him when he first started playing baseball. Some listeners might find this offensive.
