Presentation and Book Signing
Jeff Laing will be presenting (part power point presentation-Q and A, and book signing) on Tuesday, October 8, 2013, at the monthly meeting of the Santa Fe Chapter of the NAACP at St. Bede's Episcopal Church Auditorium at approximately 7:30 P.M.
The topic will be "Bud Fowler and African- American Baseball in the Pre-Negro Leagues Era, (1878-1920)."
The talk is based on Jeff's recent book BUD FOWLER: BASEBALL'S FIRST BLACK PROFESSIONAL (McFarland, 2013) which received a "Robert Peterson Recognition Award" by the Society of American Baseball Research's Negro Leagues Committee for "increasing public awareness" of early African-American baseball.
