Looking for something fun, educational and cultural for this coming weekend? Stop by the Virginia Historical Society in Richmond Saturday morning (August 11th at 10:30A) for the unique opportunity to meet and mingle with Henry “Pistol” Mason, Joe “Pop” Durham, Mamie “Peanut” Johnson-Goodman, and Pedro Sierra — four Negro League Baseball players. Attendees will be able to take pictures, get autographs and ask the players about life in the Negro League.
At 12:30P, a ticketed fundraiser luncheon and auction will follow the free educational event. Proceeds from the auction benefit the Negro Leagues Baseball Grave Marker Project, which serves to provide proper headstones for deceased Negro League players with unmarked graves.
