Celebrating Black History Month

This February, the Reds join the celebration of Black History Month to honor the accomplishments of African-Americans throughout history.

In Reds Country, this is the perfect opportunity to salute the contributions of so many talented Black players to the rich tradition of Reds baseball. We hope fans join this celebration in a number of ways throughout the month.

Below you will find a series of art renderings featuring Chuck Harmon, the first Black player in Reds history, along with the 12 Black players in the Reds Hall of Fame. Check back throughout the month for images to be added.
