Exhibit: Negro Baseball Leagues

Friday, February 1, 2019

When baseball first organized in the 1860s, Jim Crow laws and segregationist sentiment effectively shut black ballplayers out of major and minor league competition. African Americans formed their own teams and barnstormed across the country from the 1880s through 1962. This special exhibit features memorabilia from the historic Negro National Leagues.
