An eye-opening examine the lifestyles and legacy of Jackie Robinson, the guy who broke the colour barrier in significant League Baseball and have become an American hero.
Baseball, basketball, soccer — regardless of the sport, Jackie Robinson excelled. His abilities may have simply landed one other guy a profession in professional activities, yet in the United States within the Thirties and ’40s, such possibilities have been closed to athletes like Jackie for one cause: his pores and skin was once the inaccurate colour. Settling for enjoying baseball within the Negro Leagues, Jackie chafed on the lack of ability to turn out himself the place it mattered such a lot: the key leagues. Then in 1946, department Rickey, supervisor of the Brooklyn Dodgers, made up our minds he used to be going to damage the “rules” of segregation: he recruited Jackie Robinson. Fiercely decided, Jackie confronted merciless and infrequently violent hatred and discrimination, yet he proved himself repeatedly, displaying braveness, restraint, and an exquisite skill to play the sport. during this compelling biography, award-winning writer Doreen Rappaport chronicles the extreme lifetime of Jackie Robinson and the way his achievements gained over — and altered — a segregated nation.
