Book review

When the Negro National League was formed in Kansas City in 1920, a new chapter in sports history, indeed in American history, began to be written.

Whistle Stop: Black Baseball in Detroit chronicles the history of the various teams and players that spent time in the "Motor City." From the aftermath of the First World War, through the Jazz Age and Prohibition, the Great Depression, and through the 1950s, the history of the Negro Leagues parallels the history of Black America, from segregation to full inclusion. With the hiring of pioneers like Jackie Robinson by the major leagues came the end of the Negro Leagues, and the end of an era. You will meet the players--"Ghost" Marcell, "Cool Papa" Bell, "Bingo" DeMoss, and the great Norman "Turkey" Stearnes--who made this sport a vibrant and exciting part of the American landscape.
