Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, Kansas City, Missouri

In the early 20th century, African-Americans were banned from playing professional baseball with whites, so they created their own teams and leagues across the country instead.

The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City, Missouri, highlights the rich history of African-American baseball with interactive exhibits and hundreds of photographs from the era. 960 1280
