Pride and Passion: The African American Baseball Experience

Implementation of a traveling exhibition that would tour to 20 libraries, examining African Americans' participation in organized baseball from the Civil War to the present.

The American Library Association, in cooperation with the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, Cooperstown, N.Y., proposes to develop a traveling exhibition for 20 libraries based upon the permanent Hall of Fame exhibition, "Pride and Passion--The African American Baseball Experience." The exhibit tells the story of African Americans' participation in baseball beginning with the Civil War Period and continuing to the present time, shows a national audience how baseball has long reflected the complicated and painful history of race relations in the United States, and gives libraries the opportunity to work with scholars and other speakers, such as players from the Negro League, to present public humanities programs that will attract a wide audience. A planning seminar, large array of educational and support materials, and web sites will support the tour. The tour will begin in Fall 2008 and continue through Fall 2010.
