interviewed for the exhibit were Robyn Davis

Reggie White you know. Bob Mann and Emlen Tunnell you might not, but a new exhibit at Neville Public Museum ranks them with White as game changers in the history of black football players in Green Bay.

Bob Mann broke color barriers for two National Football League teams, including the Green Bay Packers in 1950. Tunnell was brought to town by Vince Lombardi in 1959 to pave the way for other talented black players. And White s high profile signing with the Packers in 1993 made it attractive for any talented players to come to Green Bay again.

Those three and many other black Packers are given voice in Delay of Game Experiences of African American Players in Titletown, which opens on Saturday at the museum https://www.packersgbstore.com/jermaine … -c-88.html, 210 Museum Place in downtown Green Bay.

The museum wanted to cover an area of Packers history the team was not focusing on in its 100th anniversary celebration, and to build off its previous exhibit, Hometown Advantage The Community and the Packers.

The diversity was really missing from that conversation https://www.packersgbstore.com/deangelo … -c-90.html, said Lisa Kain, exhibit curator. We are the right ones to do this story in Green Bay.

Among those interviewed for the exhibit were Robyn Davis, executive director of United Way of Brown County and a Green Bay Packers director, Harry Sydney, Dexter McNabb and Heaven Daniels https://www.packersgbstore.com/jamaal-w … -c-89.html, wife of current Packers defensive tackle Mike Daniels.

Providing support and lending artifacts to the exhibit, to go along with the museum s extensive photo collection, were the Packers, Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. and Bob Mann s family.
