Toni Stone–Minnesota’s Female Jackie Robinson
Baseball spring training has begun, and we have a very special baseball player visiting the library. St. Paul native Toni Stone (1921-1996), the “female Jackie Robinson”, was the first woman to play professional baseball in the Negro Leagues. This week, one of the Minnesota History Players from the Minnesota History Center will be at the Moorhead Library to share Toni’s inspiring story confronting multiple types of discrimination.
Our Toni Stone event will be at Moorhead Library at 2:00 pm on Thursday, March 7th.
This performance is part of The Beat Goes On series, funded in part or in whole with money from the Minnesota Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund. If you like programs like this, be sure to let your legislators know.
