“Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician with her own plan to win, inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet, and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage!” Written by Pixar

Sharing Our History: Meeting Mamie “Peanut” Johnson at the Negro League Museum

If you have been in Kansas City for more than a month or so, I am sure you have heard of the iconic Negro League Baseball Museum. I remember when I was growing up, our school would take a yearly trip to the museum and we would get to see the world famous Buck O’Neil! It was like history was taking us by the hand and guiding us through remarkable times.
Sharing Our History: Meeting Mamie "Peanut" Johnson at the Negro League Museum


The Negro League Museum is so rich in history and full of legends but there is one in particular I would like to introduce you to! iFamily please meet Mrs. Mamie “Peanut” Johnson, the first ever WOMAN pitcher to play in the Negro Leagues. Mrs. Johnson along with 2 other women not only played in the league, but they played with and against the men as well!
Mamie was one remarkable player! She lead the Indianapolis Clowns to a 33-8 win/loss record from 1953-1955 and standing at only 5’3 and around 100 pounds, she was given the new nickname “Peanut.” Not to mention, she had a hand that gave all of her opponents a little added competition.

After her time playing in the Negro League, Peanut became a nurse for over 25 years. Peanut has since then had a book written about her life called “A Strong Right Arm”. And we just so happen to have an actual autograph copy available for one lucky readers! Go to iFamilyKC.com to Enter2Win our autographed copy now!

The Negro League Baseball Museum has been an icon staple in the Kansas City area! With so many schools, families and historians visiting, it has not only been educational but empowering. Teaching everyone at any age, that you can do anything!
