This OH-sponsored exhibition highlights Native Americans who broke baseball’s “color barrier” by playing in the major leagues in the decades prior to Jackie Robinson’s debut in 1947. The exhibit includes artifacts from a private collector who has extensively researched this subject and has profiled 30 Native American players of this era, 19 of whom were from Oklahoma.
The museum is open from 9:00am to 5:00pm, Monday through Saturday. Cherokee Heritage fees are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, students with ID, $7 for school-age children. Cherokee citizens are admitted free on the first Saturday of the month.
