We believe this image is from June 30, 1967 - Baseball legend Jackie Robinson came to Buffalo at the request of Governor Nelson Rockefeller to assist with soc...ial dialogue after days of unrest. Pictures here, L to R, Arthur Eve, (unknown male), Robinson and Thelka McCall. McCall was an East Side hair dresser who became a pioneer Buffalo broadcaster on WUFO Radio (1080am). Can anyone help with the ID? Picture to be used in a future book on Buffalo Broadcasting. Forgotten Buffalo archives.
