Description

We are an educational non-profit organization dedicated to developing, maintaining, and exhibiting materials and artifacts focused on the history of Blacks in baseball. Our activities are aimed at every level from school age children to adults and including educators, businesses, and community resource persons. Our mission is to provide opportunities for research, exploration and advocacy and to encourage the efforts of children and adults to work together to create a community resource center in honor of the Negro Leagues.

History

We came together in June of 2008 with the idea of developing an educational center to house a collection of materials and artifacts that were being maintained for the purpose of taking exhibits out to schools and churches. We wanted a place where people could visit to see our collection.

Artifacts Collections

Baseball memorabilia, vintage equipment, photos, books, videos

Research Collections

Newspaper clippings, photos, books
