"Pride and Passion: The African American Baseball Experience" is a collaboration between the National Endowment for the Humanities, the American Library Association (ALA), and the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. "Pride and Passion has been designated as part of the NEH's "We the People" initiative, exploring significant events and themes in our nation's history and culture and advancing knowledge of the principles that define America. The story of African Americans in baseball is a remarkable and fascinating slice of American history. It parallels the failures of the greater American society in solving the racial problems resulting from slavery, the Civil War and the confusion of Reconstruction. Baseball is one of America's central institutions, and it has long reflected the complicated and painful history of race in the United States. "Pride and Passion" tells the story of black baseball players in the U.S. over the past century and a half.
