Summary:

Before Jackie Robinson broke Major League Baseball's color barrier in 1947, Black athletes played in the Negro Leagues, on teams coached by Black managers, cheered on by Black fans. Those leagues owed their existence and success to savvy businesspeople like Effa Manley, the Black female co-owner of the Newark Eagles. Manley was the team's business manager, leading her team to win the Negro World Series in 1946. Williams shows how Manley devoted her life to Black empowerment, invested in community programs, and fought for her team's place on an unequal field. -- adapted from jacket.
