Teaching about Segregation and Race in America

Cover: Jackie Robinson in Kansas City Monarchs Uniform. Photograph by Kansas City Call newspaper, 1945. Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division, Visual Materials from the NAACP Records. LC-DIG-ppmsc-00039.

Back Cover: Baseball Game, Manzanar Relocation Center, Calif. Photograph by Ansel Adams, 1943. Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division, Ansel Adams's Photographs of Japanese-American Internment at Manzanar. LC-DIG-ppprs-00369.

Professional athlete Jackie Robinson joined the Kansas City Monarchs of the Negro Leagues in 1945 before breaking American major league baseball's "color line" in 1947. Amateur players at the Manzanar War Relocation Center in California organized baseball games despite their status as prisoners in Japanese American internment camps during World War II. Far more than just recreation, baseball offers social, cultural, and political insights into history, as illustrated by David J. Laliberte in "Foul Lines: Teaching Race in Jim Crow America through Baseball History," which begins on page 329 of this special-focus issue on teaching about segregation and race in America.
