Traveling exhibit explores Negro Leagues Baseball.
Provided, Negro Leagues Baseball Museum

  In the first half of the 1900s racism and Jim Crow laws kept African-American baseball players from being on the same teams as white players. So in 1920 the Negro National League was formed, soon followed  by other rival Negro Leagues. An exhibit now on display at the Galleries at Sinclair in Dayton, Ohio, Shades of Greatness, is the first collaborative art exhibition inspired by the history of Negro Leagues Baseball.

Today, at the Cincinnati Reds’ training camp in the suburban desert that is Goodyear, Arizona, the Reds pitchers and catchers report for duty. Some have been there for days, anxious for another season of baseball to begin.

Some will tell you that you are crazy; that spring officially begins on Thursday, March 20 – the vernal equinox.
