The Color Line on the Baseball Diamond

Wednesday, February 13 at 7:00 pm in the Cranford Community Center. Black baseball in America is a multifaceted narrative, including pioneers like Jackie Robinson and the rich relationships in “Blackball” during America’s era of segregation, across the nation and in New Jersey. An account by a veteran Negro Leaguer, a rendition of the baseball poem “KC at the Bat” by its author, Kevin Kane, and documentary excerpts will further participants’ understanding. Presented by Dr. Lawrence Hogan, Ph.D, professor emeritus of history at Union County College.
