Before the year 1942, African Americans were denied the possibility of playing Major League Baseball. As a result, African Americans formed their own leagues and played baseball among themselves and anyone else who wanted to play them. Many of baseball's greats came from the Negro Leagues, such as Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks, Willie Mays, and of course, Jackie Robinson. This book is the story of those leagues, told as if by the players themselves. It is wonderfully illustrated by the artist/author Nelson and many of the illustrations have been displayed as individual pieces of art in museums such as the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
