The Just Yesterday series uses iconic pop culture references to put systemic injustices from our recent past into context — injustices that continue to oppress communities of color to this day.
AMERICA FOUGHT IN TWO WORLD WARS BEFORE AFRICAN AMERICANS PLAYED IN ONE WORLD SERIES
Limited run sold exclusively by the WAM Shop.

 

While African Americans fought and died for their country in both World War I and II, Black Americans weren’t allowed to play Major League Baseball until 1947. Hall of fame player Jackie Robinson was the first Black American to play Major League Baseball when he started at first base for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. That same year, Jackie Robinson and Dan Bankhead were the first African Americans to play in the 1947 World Series, two years after World War II.
