Paul Pepper: Author Bill Young, "Trailblazers in Black Baseball" & Suzanne Opperman, SMART Recovery

Jun 18, 2019

Author BILL YOUNG explores the early years of baseball great Jackie Robinson in his new book, 'J.L. Wilkinson and the Kansas City Monarchs: Trailblazers in Black Baseball'. Bill says Robinson had support within the league, but that he experienced a "heckuva lot of racial taunting." Also, SMART Recovery's SUZANNE OPPERMAN wants to help those with abnormal dependencies realize that what they're doing is a choice by getting family members to take part in positive reinforcement.
