Images, film and artifacts of African-American baseball often forgotten or ignored. Now through Dec. 31st

Cincinnati’s role in the Negro League story is examined through images, period artifacts and rare film footage. Exhibit highlights include early game-used bats from Willie Mays, Hank Aaron and Ernie Banks, each of whom began his career in the Negro Leagues. Rare footage of a Negro Leagues game played at Crosley Field in 1946 plays continuously in the exhibit space and seldom-seen advertising broadsides promoting the Cincinnati Clowns are on public display for the first time. The exhibit also pays homage to Chuck Harmon, the Reds’ first African-American player.
