The exhibit highlights the story of Effa Manley, who along with her husband, Abe, owned the Newark Eagles. However, it was Mrs. Manley who ran the day-to-day operations of the team from 1935-46 and eventually became the sole owner following her husbands death. Mrs. Manley was a savvy executive and a shrewd negotiator who knew the business of baseball as well as any of her male counterparts. Her Eagles teams boasted superstar talent including future Hall of Famers Monte Irvin, Larry Doby, Leon Day and Willie Wells. The club won the 1946 Negro Leagues World Series. Mrs. Manley became the first woman nominated and inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2006.
