Q&A with Jimmy Raye and Dr. Ben Hartnell’s history classes

Visit my home page, TomShanahan.Report

A Q&A was held through a Zoom call with Michigan State Hall of Fame quarterback Jimmy Raye, the South’s first Black quarterback to win a national title and a pioneer Black college and NFL coach, and Dr. Ben Hartnell’s history classes at Westerville North (Ohio) near Columbus.

Hartnell, a Michigan State graduate, used the book “Raye of Light, Jimmy Raye, Duffy Daugherty, the 1965-66 Michigan State Spartans and the Integration of College Football” as an instructional tool. The students read the book to learn how sports can play a role in the Civil Rights movement.

The four history classes of ninth and 10th graders assembled in a school auditorium on April 26, 2022. Hartnell had his students contribute 25 questions for consideration. For privacy reasons, the students couldn’t appear on video, and I read the questions for Jimmy to answer.
