In this episode of Saving Stories we hear from Effa Manley, a powerful co-owner of the Newark Eagles of the Negro Baseball League.  She says the integration of Major League Baseball in 1947 hastened the demise of a business she and other black entrepreneurs helped create and sustain.

The full story is explored in the Nunn Center's new podcast series called the Wisdom Project.
