Mosaic Templars to show Negro Leagues exhibit

Posted: Updated:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Mosaic Templars Cultural Center in Little Rock is preparing to show a traveling exhibition about Negro Leagues baseball.

The center said Monday that the exhibition begins Aug. 9 with a reception that will feature live music and a talk by former Kansas City Monarchs player Bill "Youngblood" McCrary.

McCrary lives in Hot Springs Village and played with greats that include Jackie Robinson, Satchel Paige, Ernie Banks and Buck O'Neil.

Organizers say the exhibition consists of 34 works of original art created by national and regional artists who were tasked to depict what life was like in the Negro Leagues.

The works will be shown through Dec. 1. Admission is free. The museum in downtown Little Rock is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
