Our Hank: The 80th Anniversary of Baseball's Hebrew Hammer

Hank Greenberg was a five-time Major League Baseball All-Star, a two-time American League MVP, and a Hall of Famer. He was also Jewish – in a time when a generation of Jews was struggling to find their way in the New World, Hank Greenberg transformed the way non-Jews viewed Jews, and the way Jews saw themselves. Author John Rosengren will discuss his new book and director Aviva Kempner will screen exciting new extras from the new DVD of her Peabody award-winning documentary, which includes a phone interview with Ted Williams, more fun fan stories from Senator Carl Levin, Alan Dershowitz, and Walter Matthau, new interviews with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and much more.
