"Forgotten Four: The Integration of Pro Football,” a one-hour sports documentary premiered worldwide on the premium entertainment network Epix

The Pro Football Hall of Fame recently held a special screening of the documentary that tells the inspirational story of four African Americans – Marion Motley
, Bill Willis
, Woody Strode and Kenny Washington – who in 1946 permanently reintegrated pro football, one year before Jackie Robinson integrated Major League Baseball.
The premiere at the Hall was followed by a roundtable panel discussion moderated by Hall of Fame Executive Vice President Joe Horrigan and included Hall of Famer Charlie Sanders
, Hall of Fame selector Jarrett Bell of USA Today, along with Bill Willis and Clem Willis, the sons of Hall of Famer Willis.
“Forgotten Four” will air again on Sunday, Sept. 28, 2014 at 8 a.m. EDT.
