Pride & Passion: The African-American Baseball Experience at the Poughkeepsie Public Library
The exhibit Pride & Passion: The African-American Baseball Experience opens tomorrow at the Poughkeepsie Public Library.
This nationally touring exhibition, which chronicles the remarkable history of baseball’s Negro leagues and the challenges and successes of African-American baseball players, opens today in Library’s Rotunda area.
An accompanying program series features lectures that relate the history of pre-integration baseball and the days leading to Jackie Robinson’s efforts to break the color barrier in America’s national pastime.
The public is invited to view the exhibit during regular library hours through February 24. Library director Tom Lawrence joins us.
