The Kings Of Casino Park Black Baseball in the Lost Season of 1932 (Hardcover)
|Author: Thomas Aiello|
Aiello addresses long-held misunderstandings and misinterpretations of the Louisiana Monarchs black baseball team''s 1932 season. He tells the almost-unknown story of the team--its time, its fortunes, its hometown--and positions black baseball in the context of American racial discrimination. He illuminates the culture-changing power of a baseball team and the importance of sport in cultural and social history.
