The History of Black Baseball

Presented by

As great as Jackie Robinson was, he was not the first American Black Baseball Player. This presentation will show the ways baseball has reflected the role of African Americans in baseball especially beginning in the 19th century, followed by the Jim Crow and Civil Rights Era where Jackie Robinson, Larry Doby and so many other black ballplayers led the way toward racial equality in the US. This multi-media presentation includes power-point slides, video, and music.
