Join us for an exciting evening Author Talk on Zoom. We excited to have Ted Reinstein, Author and “Chronicle” Reporter join us online for a discussion and presentation on his new book Before Brooklyn: The Unsung Heroes Who Helped Break Baseball’s Color Barrier. 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.
The Evening Lectures are made possible by a generous grant from The Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club.
