American Series 2012 | September 15 – November 11, 2012
Original paintings by award-winning artist Kadir Nelson which tell the story of baseball’s Negro Leagues in the first half of the twentieth century: the story of gifted athletes and determined owners, of hundreds of unsung heroes who overcame segregation, hatred, terrible conditions, and low pay to do the one thing they loved more than anything else in the world: Play Ball!
