This is a special showing and director talk about the documentary “Black & Blue: The story of Gerald Ford, Willis Ward and the 1934 Michigan-Georgia Tech Football Game

When Georgia tech came to Michigan in 1934, the Wolverines were forced to bench their best player, Willis Ward, because he was an African-American. This infuriated Ward’s best friend on the team, a future president by the name of Jerry Ford, who threatened to quit the team in response. The friendship that began in the Big House lasted all the way to the White House. This is the story of two schools, two friends and a game that changed everything. Run Time 56 minutes

Director Brian Kruger will speak and be available for a Q & A after the showing.
