The Atlanta Black Crackers were a prominent team in the annals of Negro League Baseball, representing the city of Atlanta with pride. The team was founded as the Atlanta Cubs in 1919 by a group of black college students from local educational institutions such as Morehouse College and Clark College. In the summer of 1919, the team made an official name change to the Atlanta Black Crackers, as they were commonly referred to by locals due to the presence of the Atlanta Crackers, the local White team.

The Black Crackers became members of the Negro Southern League in 1920. They operated in the Negro Southern League from 1920 until 1936 and were members of the Negro American League from 1936 until 1938. Though they were inactive from 1938 until 1943 they were revived in 1943 and active again from 1943 until 1949. Despite periods of inactivity, the Atlanta Black Crackers did leave a significant imprint on the history of baseball in Atlanta and the broader Negro Leagues.

The team enjoyed its most success on the field and financially under the ownership and management of John Harden. John Harden was a successful entrepreneur, born in Atlanta, and remembered as the owner of the Atlanta Black Crackers, owner of the Negroist Motorist Green Book listed location, Harden's Service Station on Auburn Ave, and for becoming a partial owner of the New York Black Yankees.

Some of the notable players for the Atlanta Black Crackers include:

  • James "Red" Moore: An exceptional first baseman known for his defensive skills, Moore was a standout player for the Atlanta Black Crackers. He also had a successful stint with the Newark Eagles.
  • Rafael Almeida: A Cuban player who was part of the Black Crackers in 1916, Almeida later went on to play in Major League Baseball. He was one of the first Latin American players to appear in the major leagues.
  • John Bissant: An outfielder who played for the Black Crackers, Bissant later joined the Chicago American Giants where he became an All-Star in the Negro Leagues.
