Miles and the Monarchs: A Serial Story
Miles and the Monarchs centers on a father and son trip to see the final game of the 1942 Negro League World Series between the Kansas City Monarchs and the Washington-Homestead Grays. Follow along with Miles as he learns life lessons and discovers the stories behind some of the greatest Negro League Baseball players to ever play the game.
The timing of this year’s eight-chapter story is especially serendipitous. Major League Baseball has recently announced that players from the Negro Leagues will be considered Major Leaguers. All 3,400 players, from 1920 to 1948, will be elevated to MLB status. Andrew “Rube” Foster established the Negro National League in 1920 in Kansas City, Missouri.
Complete with Teaching Guide, Miles and the Monarchs is sure to engage readers at home and students at school. Each new chapter of Miles' story will be released every Thursday starting January 7, 2021 through February 25, 2021.
