MIlton Bradley Tours the Negro League Museum

As soon as I find my self in Kansas City I plan on making this museum the first thing I do.

"It's about education and inspiration," said Bob Kendrick, the museum's director of marketing who gave Bradley his walk-through. "The story is what they did to overcome the adversity, not necessarily the game itself. It's America at its worst, but it's also America at its triumphant best."
Read the rest of story here. There are a handful of stories including a mention of a game in 1925 between a black Baseball team, the Monrovians, and a Klu Klux Klan Baseball team. Who would have thunk it.
