Synopsis

Jack Roosevelt Robinson rose from humble origins to cross baseball’s colour line and turn out to be one of the beloved males in America. A fierce integrationist, Robinson used his immense fame to talk out towards the discrimination he noticed on and off the sphere, angering followers, the press, and even teammates who had as soon as celebrated him for “turning the opposite cheek.” After baseball, he was a widely-read newspaper columnist, divisive political activist and tireless advocate for civil rights, who later struggled to stay related as diabetes crippled his physique and a brand new era of leaders set a extra militant course for the civil rights motion.
