Coinciding with the book fair this year is “We Are the Ship,” on view at the Freedom Tower. The exhibit features paintings, sketches, and educational materials from award-winning artist and illustrator Kadir Nelson’s tome We Are the Ship: The Story of Negro League Baseball, which will be available for sale at the fair. Nelson spent seven years researching, writing, and creating paintings to narrate the story of gifted athletes and determined owners, of racial discrimination and international sportsmanship, both off and on the field.
