Black History

This Day in Black History: Feb. 3, 1920

The Negro National League was founded in Kansas City, Missouri, by former player Robe Foster on Feb. 3, 1920.

The Negro Leagues would be home to some of America’s greatest Black talent and future Hall of Famers like Martin Dihigo and John Henry “Pop” Lloyd . Minorities were banned from major league teams until Jackie Robinson, a former Negro Leagues star, broke the color barrier in 1947, when he signed with the Brooklyn Dodgers.
