Thanks to RS Harvey, cricket will always have a place in my heart. Happily, I heard about this documentary while listening to the Kojo show. See the trailer for Fire in Babylon on his site.
From the late 1970s to the early 1990s, the West Indies dominated the world of cricket. No team was more feared, or fearsome, than the 11 cricketers plucked from disparate Caribbean nations. Their talent united the islands, transformed the style of cricket and became a metaphor for nations struggling under racism and oppression. Kojo explores their story, captured in the new documentary “Fire in Babylon.”
