The Best Story I’ve Heard Today, with sportswriter Zak Keefer

Indianapolis Star reporter Zak Keefer joins us to talk about a story of segregation and Jim Crow in northern Indiana. It was the advent of the jump shot, the height of high school basketball in the Hoosier State and a time that many of us simply don't have a memory of. Keefer is sharing Matthew Werner's story of 1950s Michigan City and the tale of a program that somehow gets forgotten, and the struggle the boys playing basketball endured. It's a rich story, and another great episode of the program for you to enjoy.
