one of my fav scenes to be honest, cause lawd knws if they allowed black folks in the league maaaaaaan listen, alot of what ifs possiblities
This film, “A League of Their Own” dedicates so many scenes to issues like sexism.
Yet, blink too fast and you’ll miss this short scene…the one that shows how Black women were barred from the league.
The Black woman is supposed to represent Mamie “Peanut” Johnson (who actually did try out for the league). She wasn’t allowed to play and went on to be one of the few women to play with men in the Negro League.
I WOULD LOVE TO SEE A FILM ABOUT JOHNSON AND THE OTHER WOMEN WHO PLAYED FOR THE NEGRO LEAGUE! But Hollywood …

That’s exactly the appropriate response.
