OUT OF THE SHADOWS African American Baseball from the Cuban Giants to Jackie Robinson

by | Read by Mirron Willis

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Baseball is a crossroads of American history and race, and editor Bill Kirwin's collection of essays on its pivotal figures provides insights into the sport from that perspective. Mirron Willis provides well-enunciated diction as he delivers chapters on figures from 100 years of baseball history. Willis's low, serious voice is a good fit for the gravity of the topics. Essays focus on Sol White, an early player and writer; Effa Manley, an owner in the Negro Leagues, and Dick Allen, who had a tumultuous career in the Majors in the 1960s and '70s, among others.
