On Saturday, December 3rd. at the Santori Aurora, IL Public Library, 101 S. River Street in downtown Aurora, IL approximately 50 people attended the second book launch/presentation/book signing event for TMSG Publisher's new book: "Ted Strong Jr.: The Untold Story of an Original Harlem Globetrotter and Negro Leagues All-Star."
From 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in room 126 of the library, Sherman Jenkins discussed his important biography of Ted Strong Jr., a two-sport African-American athlete from the 1930s and 1940s. Mr. Jenkins documents the racial challenges of the time and also the incredible strength of those who managed success despite the obstacles. A book-signing follows Mr. Jenkins' talk.
"I want to thank the Aurora Public Library for its support of this important work about this unsung two-sports athlete," Mr. Jenkins said. "The Strong family has roots in Aurora."
