The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories
Repository: Negro Leagues Baseball Museum
Collection Description (CRHP): As part of the "Talking Baseball" oral history project, NLBM researchers are reaching out to current and former professional baseball players and coaches to discuss their history in the game and vision for the future. The museum also holds a number of interviews from other sources.
Access Copy Note: Much of the oral history material has been recently acquired and is still being processed; the museum plans to make the interviews accessible in limited ways via the web, and staff are transcribing them for research purposes.
