Breaking the Color Line in Baseball

eBook - 2014

Rate this:
At a time when much of the United States was still racially segregated, Jackie Robinson smashed the color barrier to become the first African-American player in Major League Baseball. Outspoken in the past when it came to racial injustice, Robinson endured racist jeers from fans and players, and even death threats, with dignity and composure. His historic feat of crossing baseball's color line became a symbol in the American civil rights movement in the decades that followed.
