CLAIRE SMITH MARCH 11
In recognition of Women's History Month, the NLBM will host Black Women In Sports program on Saturday, March 11, 2017, at 1:30 pm from the Field of Legends exhibition area. Our scheduled special guest will be award winning journalist Claire Smith.

Smith has been selected as the 2017 J.G. Taylor Spink Award winner by the Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWA), the first female writer so honored. She will be recognized at the National Baseball Hall of Fame induction weekend July 2017. Smith has been described by the Hall of Fame as "a pioneer within the baseball community as one of the first women to cover a major league baseball beat extensively and as an influential voice among African-American writers." You can learn more about Smith here. 

The event is free with your paid admission to the museum.  RSVP's are suggested. To reserve a space or for more information, please call 816-221-1920 or email nlbmuseum@gmail.com
