CNN Piece on Reverend William Greason: Former Black Baron and Montford Point Marine

Reverend William Greason has an amazing story.   He is one of three surviving members of the 1948 Birmingham Black Barons, along with Willie Mays and Jim Zapp, and also a WWII combat veteran of Iwo Jima.

CNN visited recently Birmingham and Rickwood Field as part of their piece on Reverend Greason’s life.
