Segregated Charleston, SC, 1955: There are 62 official Little League programs in South Carolina-all but one of the leagues is composed entirely of white players. The Cannon Street YMCA All-Stars, an all-black team, is formed in the hopes of playing in the state's annual Little League Tournament. What should have been a time of enjoyment, however, turns sour when all of the other leagues refuse to play against them and even pull out of the program. As the only remaining Little League team in the state, Cannon Street was named state winner by default, giving the boys a legitimate spot in the Little League Baseball World Series held in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. While the Cannon Street team is invited to the game as guests, they are not allowed to participate since they have not officially 'played' and won their state's tournament.Raven, Margot Theis is the author of 'Let Them Play', published 2005 under ISBN 9781585362608 and ISBN 1585362603.
