Pride and Passion: The African-American Baseball Experience

October 12, 2012December 7, 2012

The University of Massachusetts at Amherst's W.E.B. DuBois Library hosts Pride and Passion: The African-American Baseball Experience, a traveling exhibition examining the challenges faced by African-American baseball players as they sought equal opportunities in their sport begining in the post-Civil War era.

Pride and Passion: The African-American Baseball Experience, organized by the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and the American Library Association Public Programs Office, was made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). The traveling exhibition is based upon an exhibition of the same name on permanent display at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y.

The W.E.B. DuBois Library is sponsoring several free programs for the public in connection with the exhibition.
