In 1937 two regional leagues appeared, the Negro National League, now in the east, and the Negro American League in the midwest. Both leagues did very well and had a rippling effect on the black economy boosting sales in black hotels, restaurants, and bars. This lasted until 1945 when the Brooklyn Dodgers signed Jackie Robinson and the color barrier fell.
