This nationally 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, through integration of the major leagues in the mid-20th century. The exhibit was organized by the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and the American Library Association, with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities: great ideas brought to life. The Louisville Free Public Library hosted Pride and Passion from June 20 - August 3, 2012.
