Celebration of Black History Month: Satchel Paige Defying Time

The Bruce Museum is presenting a film that celebrates the life of baseball’s most enduring legend. In an era when baseball was segregated, Paige was the single most important player in the Negro Baseball Leagues and in 1948 went on to triumph in the major leagues as a 42-year-old rookie. He would go on to become a two time all-star at the ages of 45 and 46. To Paige, “age is a question of mind over matter, if you don’t mind, age don’t matter.”

The evening will feature a Q&A with director/screenwriter and Negro Leagues baseball historian, Craig Davidson. Held in partnership with Connecticut Film Festival and Some Things Fishy Catering. Complimentary refreshments will be served. There are four events (February 8, 13, 20, 27).
