In 1963 at the height of the Civil Rights Movement, the Loyola Ramblers of Chicago broke racial barriers in college basketball on their way to a national championship. Loyola’s most memorable game that season was against an all-white team from Mississippi State that was forbidden by their Governor to leave the state to play against black athletes. That game became known as the ‘Game of Change’.

Yet few beyond the Loyola family and die-hard college basketball fans know their story. Now, nearly 60 years later, the legend is revisited and reexamined by Loyola basketball player and co-captain Lucas Williamson. Woven together with archival footage and interviews, the legacy of the ‘63 Ramblers is revisited at a time when there is–once again–great racial tension and strife in America. Despite the advances made by the Ramblers at the time, the challenges we face today beg the question: Did the ‘Game of Change’ actually change anything at all?
