Negro Leagues Black History Month

February 13, 1920: Officials organize the Negro National League in a meeting held at the YMCA in Kansas City, Missouri, with the Detroit Stars as a charter member.
Spearheaded by league founder Rube Foster, the NNL will become the most successful of all Negro Leagues ventures and will last until the late 1940s.
