Description:

Join us for an exclusive viewing of the documentary and education program celebrating the last of the Brooklyn Dodgers’ Boys of Summer, one of the great human-rights champions of our time.

The Best We’ve Got: The Carl Erskine Story, produced by renowned filmmaker Ted Green, takes a deep dive into Anderson Indiana’s Carl Erskine – from his upbringing as a child, to his legendary Brooklyn Dodgers baseball career, to he and his wife Betty’s remarkable exploits following the birth of their fourth child Jimmy, who was born with Down syndrome. Carl has a front-row story as he witnesses two of the greatest social changes in the past 100 years.

At the close of the show, we will have a brief Q&A session with the filmmaker!
