Communities First, Inc. | Culture Shock Program

Willie O'Ree changed hockey forever on Jan. 18, 1958.

In the midst of America's tumultuous fight to end Jim Crow and the birth of the civil rights movement, Willie - the descendant of escaped slaves - became the first black player to skate in a National Hockey League game.

The Communities First Inc. Culture Shock program, in partnership with the FIA, presents the final three selections in a monthly series dealing with African American themes and culture.
