Out at Home! The Negro Baseball League: Joseph Norman Lithographs
January 26 - March 22, 2012

Out at Home! interrogates the banning of black athletes in the mainstream quintessential American sport, baseball, and the resulting formation of a black baseball league, until Jackie Robinson broke the color line in 1947. Norman’s works are powerful metaphoric statements of how racism has sullied the game, as they reveal social content fluently rendered by an accomplished, aesthetic hand.
