Darryl Hill: now (left) and as a player for the Maryland Terrapins (right).
As the first African-American football player at the University of Maryland, Darryl Hill helped break the ACC's racial barrier. His tale is recounted in a new play, "Moving the Chains: They Darryl Hill Story", by Michael Olmert. Later this month, a staged reading will be held at the Lincoln Theatre, in association with Theater J. Rebecca Sheir sits down with Hill in the Lincoln Theatre's lobby to find out more.
