2021 Serial Story Is Here!

In NIE News On
- Updated

Miles and the Monarchs is the title of the Missouri Press Foundation’s Newspapers in Education’s 2021 serial story. The National Newspaper Association Foundation and the Missouri Press Foundation have been teaming together to produce an annual free serial story for years.

Miles and the Monarchs centers on a father and son trip to see the final game of the 1942 Negro League World Series, between the Kansas City Monarchs and the Washington-Homestead Grays. The timing of this year’s eight-chapter story is especially serendipitous. Major League Baseball has recently announced that players from the Negro Leagues will be considered Major Leaguers. All 3,400 players, from 1920 to 1948, will be elevated to MLB status. Andrew “Rube” Foster established the Negro National League in 1920, in Kansas City, MO, so both the story and the announcement are timely.

Travel along with Miles and his father as they learn life lessons and meet some of the great Negro League Baseball players by visiting mo-nie.com and using the download code monarchs to access the Teacher’s Guide and all eight chapters.
