Birmingham Black Barons Database
The Government Documents Department has developed a database on the Birmingham Black Barons that provides a keyword index to articles in local newspapers including The Birmingham News and The Birmingham World, an African-American newspaper. The database searches for keywords in article titles and bylines and is updated regularly by the Government Documents Department. A considerable amount of staff time went into creating this database and it will make searching for these newspaper articles a lot easier.
The Birmingham Public Library is featuring the traveling exhibition, Pride and Passion: The African-American Baseball Experience, at the Central location May 1 through June 11. There will be a number of events associated with the exhibition at the library. Please take the opportunity to come see the exhibition and enjoy some of the associated programs. Check out the Pride and Passion website for more information.
Media coverage is welcomed.
