Summary
"This book recovers the nearly lost history of the segregation-era array of semipro leagues, barnstorming clubs, and loose organizations of all-black teams by sharing stories of African American ballplayers in Minnesota, from the 1870s to the 1960s, through photos, artifacts, and spoken histories passed through the generations"--
