About this Event

Along with paying tribute to the life and legacy of Dr. King, this program will launch our series of multi-generational programs and activities showcasing the challenging, historic, and triumphant legacy of baseball’s Negro Leagues and the African American experience in baseball. The 2021 programs will highlight how these experiences reflect American society and culture in general, to bring awareness to how the past is always with us – to teach us, and to provide inspiration and encouragement to those facing similar challenges today.

We are thankful to the Cuyahoga County Arts and Culture Council for funds to support our efforts. As a result all programs are free.

Donations to support the community and youth efforts of the Community Cup Classic Foundation and Josh Gibson Foundation are welcome .

The virtual login information will be provided to you after you register for the program.
