Meltzer, Brad, (author.). Eliopoulos, Chris, (illustrator.).

Summary

Summary:

Presents an illustrated biography of the man who broke baseball's color barrier and changed the way Americans viewed equality in sports.
"Jackie Robinson always loved sports, especially baseball. He could run, leap, and throw better than any other kid around. But he lived at a time when the rules weren't fair to African Americans: Even though Jackie was a great athlete, he wasn't allowed on the best teams just because of the color of his skin. Jackie knew that sports were best when everyone, of every color, played together. He became the first black baseball player on a major-league team, and his bravery helped lead the way to equality in all sports in America."--Jacket.
