On Saturday, August 11, 2012, the Virginia Historical Society
(VHS) hosted four Negro League baseball players at its museum located at 428 North Boulevard in Richmond. Henry
"Pistol" Mason, Joe "Pop" Durham, Mamie "Peanut" Johnson-Goodman, and Pedro Sierra participated in an interviewstyle
educational program answering questions about their Negro League ball-playing days and Civil Rights struggles in the
1950s and 1960s. Two Richmond Flying Squirrels players, Wendell Fairley and Johnny Monell, also participated in the Q&A. The program's moderator was VHS Curator of African American History, Dr. Lauranett Lee. The program was co-presented by The Center for African American Genealogical
Research, Inc. (CAAGRI), the Richmond Flying Squirrels, the Urban League of Greater Richmond, and the VHS.
