Black History Month Celebration

February 1 @ 10:30 am - February 28 @ 11:30 pm

We welcome and give thanks to Dr. Miriam Wright, a history professor at Windsor University, as our guest speaker today. The 1934 Chatham Coloured All-Stars were the first Black team to win an Ontario Baseball Amateur Association championship. Until very recently, the story of this team was not well-known outside of Chatham or Southwestern Ontario. She will present the history of racism related to the team, the story of this team and its connections with Black baseball in Windsor and Detroit.
