Description

He was a gifted athlete whose greatest feat came not on a playing field, but in smashing the color barrier that had denied so many others a chance to compete. Jackie Robinson was a collegiate All-American in baseball, football, basketball and track. But in an era of segregation he had little chance for a career as an athlete. His dramatic entrance into major league baseball in 1947 changed professional sports and the country forever. On the field, he was a Hall of Famer. Off the field, he worked with Martin Luther King, Joe Louis and other leaders, battling racism and injustice. Interviews with former teammates and Robinson's widow and clips of Jackie both on and off the diamond highlight this portrait of a man whose grace was as winning as his talent. Step up to the plate for the inspiring story of the sports legend whose record in civil rights eclipses his many accomplishments on the playing field.
