238 NINE Vol. 24.1–2 that story. J.L. Wilkinson and the Kansas City Monarchs will be a worthy addi- tion to the library of any baseball fan. Bob Luke. Integrating the Orioles, Baseball and Race in Baltimore. Jeffer- son, NC: McFarland & Company, 2016. 203 pp. Paper, $29.95. J. L. Steele As years go by and older generations pass, it is important that the stories and names involved with American’s Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s be preserved, remembered and learned from. The same holds true in Amer- ica’s great game of baseball. While Major League Baseball celebrates Jackie Robinson Day each April 15, the history of integrating each of the big- league clubs can and should be an interesting study. Integrating the Orioles, Baseball and Race in Baltimore is that type of study. This book will appeal to readers on multiple levels. It is first, a book of baseball history. Fans of the game should enjoy this even if they are not fans of the franchise. Orioles fans will of course, be interested in learning more about how their team and city dealt with race relations. Those interested in the Negro Leagues will also find this book
