The four-hour documentary Black Magic, airs the second of its two parts tonight on ESPN.
Awarding winning filmmaker Dan Klores (The Boys of Second Street Park) tells the rich history of African-Americans and the game of basketball. From the days when black players could only play at Historical Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) to the desegregation of the NBA, Black Magic is the most important basketball documentary since Hoop Dreams.
On Sunday night, the first part of the two-part documentary aired commercial free on ESPN. Tune in tonight for the second half of the documentary, and learn the history of America’s game. Black Magic is narrated by Wynton Marsalis and Samuel L. Jackson.
