Jackie Robinson in a rundown
Jackie Robinson, 1947, 34x23, by Arthur K Miller, 2012.
Today, April 15, 1947 Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball. Unfortunately this day didn't change people's attitudes & he still had to endure immense racism from businesses, "fans", and fellow players as well; and he did it all with grace. Happy Jackie Robinson Day.
In 1947 Jackie Robinson became the first black man to play in the major leagues since the 1880s. He was instrumental in bringing an end to racial segregation in professional baseball, which had relegated black players to the Negro leagues for six decades.
