Ted Reinstein will be discussing his latest book - Before Brooklyn: The Unsung Heroes Who Helped Break Baseball's Color Barrier
 

Before Brooklyn

 

 

"In a sweeping story spanning the six decades during which Black baseball players were banned from the major leagues, we meet the extraordinary Americans from all walks of life who never gave up the struggle to integrate our national pastime and overturn its racist past.  They directly paved the way for Jackie Robinson, but received little fanfare and remained largely anonymous.  Until now."
