Breaking the Colour Barrier
Wednesday, February 7 at 7 PM – 8 PM
Chatham-Kent Public Library
The Chatham Coloured All-Stars were the first Black team to win an Ontario Baseball Association championship in 1934. Their history has been digitized and preserved by the University of Windsor in collaboration with the Chatham Sports Hall of Fame, the family of Wilfred (Boomer) Harding who was a member of the team, and the Chatham-Kent Black Historical Society. Dr. Heidi Jacobs and Dr. Miriam Wright from the University will talk about the project. Everyone welcome.
