L'Affaire Jake Powell: The Minority Press Goes To Bat against Segregated Baseball.
Lamb, Chris
Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly, v76 n1 p21-34 Spr 1999
Contributes to scholarship on journalism and racial politics and relations by examining how a particular incident in 1938 (a racist remark made in a radio interview by a New York Yankee outfielder) was covered by mainstream dailies, black weeklies, and a Communist daily. Describes how this incident provided the catalyst to challenge segregation in baseball, mobilizing pressure from black activists, journalists, and others. (SR)
