Paul Brown: and Racial Integration in Ohio Football
January 30 through July 31, 2016.

The Massillon Museum’s Paul Brown and Racial Integration in Ohio Football exhibition will celebrate the seventieth anniversary of the 1946 reintegration of the National Football League. During his first year with the Browns, Paul Brown and Los Angeles Rams coach Adam Walsh made professional football history when each signed two black players.  The Browns at that time were part of the All-American Football Conference, and the rams had been part of the NFL franchise.

An unofficial National Football League rule banning African Americans from the league was enforced from 1933 until 1946.  Coach Paul Brown was instrumental in overcoming football segregation by his continual effort to integrate teams at the naval academy, high school, college, and professional levels.
