"...It was early June, the height of present day civil unrest in America, when I decided to illustrate Negro League baseball players who not only had an impact on the game of baseball, but also contributed to the civil rights movement in this country. Baseball has always been a place of great solace for me, a distraction from the trials and tribulations of the world, and is woven deep into the fabric of America, so I decided to harness my love for the game and my abilities as an artist to educate myself, and in the process, educate my peers. I learned a great deal more about players like Jackie Robinson, Satchel Paige, Elston Howard, Josh Gibson, and Buck O'Neill, and plan to dive deeper into the history of the Negro Leagues in the future.โ€
