The exhibits teach visitors about the early days of hockey, including one of Canada’s early stars, Herb Carnegie, and the first black NHL player, Willie O’Ree, while highlighting some local history and big moments from the Washington Capitals.
“Hockey is for everyone,” said Rodney Reynolds, founder of American Legacy Network Corp., which helped organize the museum. “Whoever comes on board learns a lot about black performance in hockey.”
