2014 Hometown Teams

In 2014, “Hometown Teams” toured seven Nebraska communities. The exhibition explored the origins of popular community sports in America and their evolution to today, the rise and significance of company-owned teams and leagues, and the role of sports in the civil rights struggles by minorities and women.
