Course detail: OSH093 – Negro League Baseball: The Deep Roots of African Americans in America’s National Pastime
Excluded from the Major Leagues due to racial discrimination until the mid-20th century, African Americans formed their own professional baseball leagues. We will examine the deep roots African Americans have in America’s great game because of the Negro League era. We’ll see how the Negro leagues provided a vehicle for African Americans and dark-skinned Latino players to showcase their baseball talents despite racial and economic obstacles. Telling the stories of “Satchel” Paige, Josh Gibson and others, this course paints a true picture of Negro League baseball embedded in the fabric of 20th-century American history. INSTRUCTOR BIO: Kevin L. Mitchell is the baseball history blogger of The Baseball Scroll (www.thebaseballscroll.blogspot.com) and author of Last Train to Cooperstown: The 2006 Baseball Hall of Fame Inductees from the Negro League Era. The Kansas City, Kan. native earned bachelors and master’s degrees from the University of Kansas.
