Satchel: A Requiem for Racism

“Satchel” follows an African-American Harvard student taking a train to Florida and, as luck would have it, sitting next to Satchel Paige himself. Paige, the legendary Negro Leagues pitcher and character who finally made it to the Majors as an old man, is on his way to Spring Training and teaches the young man something Harvard never could: the impact of segregation on the black community.
