Hello friends! I contacted Dr. Raymond Doswell to talk about the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City, Missouri. Dr. Doswell is the museum's Vice President and Curator and brings a wealth of knowledge and perspective to the topic. We talked about the museum for quite a while - but what makes the conversation especially meaningful is that Dr. Doswell spent some time at the start of our conversation discussing the Negro Legues themselves - how they contributed to American culture, the opportunities they provided to black ball players who were shut out of the major leagues, and their enduring importance in American societal development. It was a great conversation, and I'm so pleased to have the chance to share our talk with all of you. And our conversation provided a meaningful context when we turned to discuss the Museum itself.
Here's a link to the museum - it's a great site and worth checking out. I've gotta get to that place - it sounds fantastic!
And be sure to check out the podcast, widely available, hosted by the museum's president, Bob Kendrick, entitled Black Diamonds. It's one of my favorities. Energy and enthusiasm - and great depth of knowledge - abound!
See you soon with a new episode, and hey, get on over to Apple and give us a good rating - it's always appreciated!
