September 30, 2021

The Chatham Coloured All-Stars made history.

They were baseball a team that fought prejudice and injustice just to play the game they loved. And in the 1934 season, they became champions of  the Ontario Baseball Association, being the first all-Black team to have ever done so. 

On this episode of the 519 Podcast, we hear from Blake Harding, the son of one of the star players in the original 1934 team, as well as sports historian Bill Humber, and authors Brock Greenhalgh and Dr. Heidi Jacobs.
