Dr. Terry Rodenberg, retired professor of sociology and Director of International Programs at Western Illinois University and University of Central Missouri, will present a lecture on “The Negro Leagues and the Desegregation of Baseball - The Rest of the Story.” Rodenberg's lecture comes just before the April release of the movie 42, a biographical film about the life of baseball player Jackie Robinson, the first African American to play Major League Baseball in the modern era. In addition to talking about how sports, the desegregation of baseball and the Negro Leagues changed our society, Rodenberg will also discuss what is happening to African American baseball players today.
