Summary:
(1919-1972) This biography details the extraordinary life of baseball great Jackie Robinson. Brooklyn Dodgers scouts found Jackie Robinson playing shortstop for a black league team. A college graduate, former All-American football player and Army officer, Robinson played with an intensity and skill that few players have ever shown. He faced scorn and prejudice with courage and conviction. Robinson is remembered mainly for making "baseball's great experiment" a success, and he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962. He displayed equal talent in business and politics. As vice president of Chock Full O'Nuts and an eloquent spokesman for the NAACP, Robinson earned a lasting place in American history both on and off the field. Part of the Black Americans of Achievement Video Collection that celebrates the most influential African Americans in history.

Only available in the US.
