Rube Foster wanted to create a black baseball league with a national footprint equal to that of the white major leagues, on and off the field. One hundred years ago, on Feb. 13, 1920, he created what later became known as the Negro Leagues. https://t.co/E9LOYUO1f0

This is an important day in American sports history. On this exact day 100 years ago, and in this very building that stands at the current intersections of MLK Jr Blvd and E 19th St in Kansas City, the Negro Leagues were formed. @nlbmprez @ColeyHarvey's photo on Negro Leagues

The Negro Leagues were one of the most important African American business enterprises in the early 20th century. Formed during segregation, they became symbols of resiliency & accomplishment. https://t.co/yG6VtkhJP1 #APeoplesJourney #NegroLeagues100 #GameChangers

Well, after having starred in baseball, basketball, track and football at UCLA, and after having served in the US Army, Robinson wanted to continue playing baseball. In 1945, he began playing for the Kansas City Monarchs of the Negro Leagues. @ColeyHarvey's photo on Negro Leagues

Organized thusly under one banner, the Negro Leagues gave marginalized black ballplayers a place to show their skill. Remember, in 1920, the US was in the height of the Jim Crow Era, “separate but equal” was law and MLB didn’t permit African Americans to play its game. @ColeyHarvey's photo on Negro Leagues
