Black History Month: Jackie Robinson


Not only an extremely talented athlete, student at UCLA, and Army officer, Jackie Robinson chose to demonstrate unmatchable self-control and focus by entering the white-only world of Major League Baseball; he was Rookie of the Year, later MVP, and inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. The indiscribable pressure to perform despite death threats and racial slurs only slightly echoed the actual racial violence of the USA through the centuries. But now it was in a beloved public forum-Major League Baseball- and the object of rascist ridicule was actually demonstrating superiority. Not of race, but athletic skills. He had a supportive wife and family, who were also in the spotlight.





 I especially love the stolen home bases.
