The son of former Georgia slaves, Monroe Ingram (about 1867-1944) was the first African American to graduate from the Kansas School for the Deaf and a "top student." In the 1890s, he pitched for a number of integrated professional/semi-professional baseball teams in Kansas, but was later forced to resign due to increasing racism. He taught at segregated school programs for the Deaf in Georgia and Oklahoma, and for many years he was in charge of the "colored department" at the Missouri School.
