The Cuban Giants and Civil Rights

May 22 @ 7:00 pm

Long Island has been in the corridors of almost all major turning points of American history, including the Civil Rights movement and the desegregation of baseball.  Babylon’s Cuban Giants was established as the first Negro League team, and its players, such as “Sol” White, went on to desegregate the minor leagues forty-seven years before Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in baseball’s Major Leagues.

This program is for Adults only.

Registration for Babylon patrons begins online, by phone, or at the Circulation Desk Thursday, April 11.  Out of district residents may begin to register Thursday, April 25.  A valid library card is required for registration.  One person per library card.
