My great grand-uncle, Charles Macarthy of Albany, Georgia, was the president of the Negro Southeastern League in 1921. He died the following year and I think the league petered out after that. Any source of more information would be welcome.

The Asheville team of the "Negro Blue Ridge league" played the Knoxville Giants on September 4, 1920 in a doubleheader at Knoxville.

The outcome is not known at this time.

Clarence, I could post the photo to see if anyone knows. I haven't seen a picture of the Royal Giants, who played in the 1920s, or any box scores from their games. I *have* seen a photo of the Asheville Blues, who played in the 1940s.

I have a picture of my Grandfather Aaron Brockman, with his all negro baseball team. All they have on the front of their uniforms is ASHEVILLE. I was wondering if the Asheville Roayl Giants wore uniforms like these? I'm very curious and would love more info.

An 8/14/1921 article in the Charlotte Observer has the Gastonia NC "Gaston Giants" searching for teams to play, and lightly taunting the colored Winston Giants of Winston-Salem in attempts to book games. Apparently both of these teams were scheduling games independently, implying that the league had collapsed by this point.
