Black History Month Quiz

Yesterday's Answers:
Actors:  Wesley Snipes and Dennis Haysbert
Film:  Major League

Today:   This actress played Coach Eddie in this movie.  The movie is about "Eddie, who is a New York limo driver and a fanatical follower of the New York Knicks professional basketball team. The team is struggling with a mediocre record when, in mid-season, "Wild Bill" Burgess, the new owner, as a public relations gimmick, stages an 'honorary coach' contest, which Eddie wins. The fans love it, so "Wild Bill" fires the coach and hires her. "*

Note:  I did not have any New York Knicks players and used random basketball players her team played against.

Edwina "Eddie" Franklin
