Take Note Radio: Negro Baseball League

Title: Negro Baseball League When the entire white culture was telling them, 'You will not play baseball,' they went ahead and formed a league. Until Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in 1947, African Americans were systematically excluded from playing in the Major Leagues. We talk with an oral historian and with two former Negro League players, about the game, the times, and what we can learn from both. Guests: Bob Allen, Jim Weedon, and Willie Fordham
