The new Negro National League was a combination of the Negro East West League and Negro Southern League. They lasted until 1936 and had six to eight teams any given year. 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.
