Ted Strong, Jr. played in seven Negro Leagues East-West All-Star games and was a key member of the 1940 Harlem Globetrotter basketball team that won the World Professional Basketball Championship.  Despite his athletic dominance in the 1930s and 40s, Strong, Jr. has largely been forgotten in American sports history.  Author Sherman L. Jenkins will share the fascinating story of this star athlete based on his new biography.  Sherman L. Jenkins is a member of the Society for American Baseball Research’s Negro Leagues Committee.
