Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier and integrated Major League baseball—changing the game forever.  Kids will enjoy discovering more about this champion of equality, including:

His astonishing skill as a four-sport athlete: football, basketball, baseball, and track

How he was court-martialed during World War II for standing up for his rights

Why he was chosen to become baseball’s first black player

How he continued to build his civil rights legacy even after his baseball career ended

 

It’s an inspiring story, beautifully told by Michael Teitelbaum.
