Beyond Their Years: The Incredible Legacies of Herb Carnegie and Buck O’Neil

Thursday, February 29, 2024 @ 6:00pm



Grunin Center
1 College Drive, Toms River, NJ 08754

Join us for a screening of the documentary “Beyond Their Years: The Incredible Legacies of Herb Carnegie and Buck O’Neil.” A panel discussion will follow the 6:00 PM screening.

“Beyond Their Years” depicts the compelling story of parallel lives lived by sports and social justice icons Herb Carnegie (hockey) and Buck O’Neil (baseball), who were excluded, because of their race, from competing at the highest professional leagues of the sports they loved. Instead of becoming angry and bitter, they channeled the injustice they both experienced into pioneering work that made their respective sports, and the world, more inclusive. The 48-minute film which features dozens of interviews and rare footage, ties together their legacies in a verité style that teaches, heals and humanizes.

Following the 6:00 PM screening of “Beyond Their Years,” stay for a panel discussion featuring Bryant McBride, first Black Vice-President at The NHL, where he brought Willie O’Ree back into the NHL; and Bernice Carnegie, daughter of Herb Carnegie and co-founder of The Herbert H. Carnegie Future Aces Foundation.

This event is sponsored by the Ocean County College Foundation, who has generously underwritten the cost of tickets, and the Organization for Black Unity.
