This short biography contains simple yet powerful text about the challenges Jackie Robinson faced.
A quick read, I really liked that this focused as much on Jackie's willingness to explicitly fight back against racism as it did on his sports prowess. It seems like a lot of what's written for kids about well know African Americans from our past is about their willingness to work together and turn the other cheek, but it's really useful and important to see these people as individuals, not martyrs or sanitized figures. Jackie Robinson was remarkable for many reasons, and I learned a lot about the ways that he fought racism aside from his diligent and tireless work on the baseball field.
