A unique approach to the history of a Negro League team: The first half of this book covers the leagues and the players of the 1920s, the 1930s, and 1940 through 1947 (when Robinson broke the color barrier). The second half is devoted to the Black Barons of subsequent decades, the former Barons invited to tryout camps, others who were signed with minor league clubs, and the fortunate few who got their long-awaited chance in the majors.

About the Author:

Larry Powell is a professor of communication studies at University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Review:

"Larry Powell has broken new ground...there is real strength in the wealth of information on individual players, much of it drawn from personal interviews"--Midwest Book Review; "Larry Powell provides not only a history of this Southern staple of Negro League Baseball, but first hand narratives from the players who lived to tell it. You will discover names of the greats that you never saw play, and by the end of the book you will wish you had been there to see them. These are the stories of the Birmingham Black Barons, and they are the ones that our future generations need to hear"--Baseball Happenings.
