Story Center Event
Virtual Event

 

Shadowball 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. Historical slides and period music enhance this emotional performance, illustrating the clash of race, sports and culture. This State of Stories program was produced in partnership with The University of Missouri Extension Community Arts Program to commemorate and celebrate the Missouri Bicentennial. This livestream will take place on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/mystorycenter.
