Virtual Field Trip: Civil Rights: Before You Could Say Jackie Robinson

Thursday, April 2, 2020 - 2:45pm to 3:30pm

In baseball — as in America — freedom is an ongoing quest. For almost 65 years, African-American players were prevented from playing Major League Baseball simply because of their skin color. In this unit, students will explore American history from the Civil War to the Civil Rights movement. They will work to learn how race relations in baseball reflected significant social and cultural developments in the United States.

This program is free in part to our collaboration with CILC but registration is required.
