Luncheon: The Negro Baseball League - Preserving its history

Luncheon: The Negro Baseball League - Preserving its history

Have you visited the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum (NLBM) here in Kansas City?  If you have, you will know that it is the world's only museum dedicated to preserving and celebrating the rich history of African-American baseball.  

We will welcome guest speaker Bob Kendrick, President of the NLBM to our luncheon.  Since returning to the NLBM in 2011, Bob has orchestrated a more than $2 million turnaround that has helped the NLBM regain its vitality and financial stability.  

Don't miss the opportunity to gain a fascinating insight into the history of the Negro Baseball League and how it changed the game of baseball.  Learn about the humble beginnings of the museum and its growth in popularity, to being named USA Today's Reader Choice #2 Best Sports Attraction in North America.  Bob will also share stories of some of the legendary players in the Negro Leagues and how their passion changed the sport forever.
