In this powerful and riveting presentation, Bobby Norfolk takes the audience on a fascinating journey through the heyday of the Negro Baseball Leagues, a time when this country was segregated by Jim Crow laws and America’s “national pastime” wore two faces, the whites-only Major Leagues and the upstart Negro National League. Norfolk tells stories of exploits both on and off the field, focusing on the St. Louis Stars' own James “Cool Papa” Bell and the Kansas City Monarch’s Leroy “Satchel” Paige.
This pre-recorded performance will feature a live intro by Bobby Norfolk and time at the end for you to ask Bobby your questions.
