From February 24th through April 8th, Cook Library is hosting “Pride & Passion: The African-American Baseball Experience”.

This traveling exhibition examines the challenges faced by African-American baseball players as they sought equal opportunities in their sport beginning in the post-Civil War era.

Pride and Passion: The African-American Baseball Experience, a traveling exhibition for libraries, was organized by the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, Cooperstown, New York, and the American Library Association Public Programs Office, Chicago. The traveling exhibition has been made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Great Ideas Brought to Life.

The traveling exhibition is based on an exhibition of the same name on permanent display at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.
