And now for What’s the T and Patty G

Tigerland is the story of a Black High School’s triumph in inner city Columbus during the turbulent civil rights movement. In the year 1969, the East High Tigers won both the state basketball and baseball championships, despite a severe economic  disadvantage. But their African-American sports teams triumphed over the wealthy white schools during the tournament. I sat down with the book’s author Wil Haygood on Tuesday, to talk about his story of triumph, and Tigerland’s place in the 21st century. The full interview is 12 minutes long, so if there is not enough time in your class today, you don’t have to watch all of it. If there’s any part of the interview you should catch, it would be the last 3 minutes, when Haygood gives advice to today’s young students. We’ll also post the full interview on our YouTube channel after today’s news. That’s our broadcast on this Thursday. I’m Patrick Geshan. My conversation now with Wil Haygood.
