New book Color Blind added to book collection

The book Color Blind: The Forgotten Team That Broke Baseball's Color Line, has been added to the Institute for Regional Studies Archives book collection.  The following is a description taken from a news release by groveatlantic.com.:
“During the Great Depression, in drought stricken Bismarck, one of the most improbable teams in the history of baseball was assembled by one of the sport’s most unlikely champions. A decade before Jackie Robinson broke into the major leagues, car dealer Neil Churchill signed the best players he could find, regardless of race, and fielded an integrated squad that took on all comers in spectacular fashion. “Color Blind,” by award-winning journalist Tom Dunkel, tells this remarkable, largely forgotten story”.
