Black And Blue: The Story Of Gerald Ford, Willis Ward And The 1934 Michigan-Georgia Tech Game
When Georgia Tech came to Michigan in 1934, the Wolverines were to bench their best player, Willis Ward, because he was an African-American. The incident infuriated Ward's best friend on the team, a future president by the name of Jerry Ford, who threatened to quit the team in response. The friendship that began in the Big House lasted all the way to the White House. This is the story of two schools, two friends and a game that changed everything.
