Black History Month Author Visit

On February 17, Creekside's 4th & 5th grade classes were visited by former Negro League baseball player Carl Long, author of The Game of Faith.  Mr. Long spoke about the importance of staying in school and his experiences of segregation and discrimination while playing baseball during the 1950s. Students had the opportunity to ask questions and each received a baseball trading card of Mr. Long.  The media center purchased five copies of his book, co-authored by Ms. Diane Taylor who also visited with the students.
