Ray Banks- Negro League Ambassador
There are many wonderful individuals supporting the efforts to erect a statue to honor Negro League Player and Humanitarian Ernest Burke here in Havre de Grace. But we are definitely privileged to have Ray Banks as a member of our committee.
He’s a walking encyclopedia on the Negro Leagues.
