THE NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE PRESENTS THE AMERICAN LEGACY BLACK HOCKEY HISTORY TOUR

NHLxALN mobile truck tour

 

Month-Long Mobile Truck Tour to Celebrate – Black Hockey Achievement

FEBRUARY 1, 2019American Legacy founder Rodney J. Reynolds announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL®) has partnered with American Legacy Magazine to curate an upcoming mobile truck exhibit tour. The mobile museum launches its six-city tour in New York City this February as part of the NHL and National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) joint Hockey Is For Everyone initiative. The theme of this year’s exhibit focuses on Black achievement in the sport of hockey.

“We’re extremely excited to partner with the NHL on this tour celebrating Black achievement in hockey. From the early 1800s through today, Black people have made major contributions to the sport, some more known than others. Attendees will find the onboard exhibits and images very enlightening and informative,” said Reynolds.

Since 2008, American Legacy has produced a mobile truck exhibit that tours various school districts, colleges & universities, churches, and African-American festivals and events across the country providing audiences with a look at Black history and accomplishments.

“Since 1958 when Willie O’Ree first paved the way for black hockey players in the NHL, our sport has seen an upward trend both on- and off- the ice, but there is still room to grow. The NHL is aware of the demographic shifts in our society and we are committed to making progress in our effort to become a more inclusive sport that welcomes everyone,” said Kim Davis, NHL Executive Vice President, Social Impact, Growth Initiatives & Legislative Affairs. “This month, sharing stories of players past and present as well as pioneers and trailblazers – whether via the traveling museum or across our platforms – we hope to demonstrate to fans and non-fans alike that there is a big community out there, and many pathways to become part of the hockey family.”

American Legacy’s month-long tour will be hosted by the following NHL teams:

  • New York Rangers (February 2nd)
  • New Jersey Devils (February 5th and 6th)
  • Nashville Predators (February 9th and 10th)
  • Tampa Bay Lightning (February 14th, 15th and 16th)
  • Philadelphia Flyers (February 22nd through the 24th)—in conjunction with the 2019 NHL Stadium Series
  • Washington Capitals (February 25th, 26th, and 27th)

The tour manager for the 2019 American Legacy Tour is MRA Experiential Tours & Equipment of Madison Heights, MI.
