Lorena told me about the Traveling Exhibit of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Gardena. We both went on Sunday. Too bad I did not hear about it before or I could have gone before when Maury Wills was there on February 1st. Here are some pictures I took:
These were the books in the exhbit but there were some others ones like “42” for sale.

I love the exhibition! Here is a picture of the three women that played baseball in the Negro Leagues. In the middle is Toni Stone, to the right is Connie Morgan, to the left is Mamie (Peanuts) Johnson, the only one that is alive. She is on the Baseball Reliquary list as one that we can vote for to be enshrined into the Hope of the Eternals. I am voting for her among others on the list.
Here is the Negro League Baseball Museum hat I bought with six team patches.
I am glad I got to go see this traveling exhibit and glad to be posting about it especially during Black History month
The exhibition in Gardena is there until Thursday February 13. The address is Nakaoka Community Center. 1670 W. 162nd Street. Admission is free.
