JCA JEWISH BOOK FESTIVAL EVENT: MATTHEW GOODMAN, THE CITY GAME
For sports fans everywhere, and those who love them! This is the thrilling and heartbreaking story of the 1950 City College of New York’s Beavers, the only team in history to win both the NIT and NCAA basketball tournaments in the same year. This accomplishment was, by every measure, extraordinary as every single player was either Jewish or African American. You won’t believe how this story ends; it includes scapegoats, corruption and powerful religious and political leaders.
