Dr Adrian Burgos talk

I’m catching up a little here.  Here are some photos from a talk that Dr Adrian Burgos did on campus last week.  Dr Burgos is the author of Playing America’s Game: Baseball, Latinos and the Color Line.

Dr Burgos took the time to talk to a journalism student before the talk.

Dr Burgos gets around.  He made a trip to the Negro League Baseball Museum in Kansas City where he presented his book.  After his talk at the U of I, Dr Burgos told me he was headed to Washington DC to speak at the National Archives.

If you missed the interview that we did with Dr Burgos on Baseball Zealot Radio, take a listen.  It’s definitely worth it especially for baseball history buffs.
