What was Jackie Robinson's Legacy?
What Were Jackie's Accomplishments and Successes?
What Struggles Did He Overcome Through His Life Time?
Jackie overcame his struggles, but it took courage and the will to never "let the fear of striking out, keep you from playing the game." He faced many challenges from being the only African American on his team from fans and even his own teammates. He was also threatened to be killed along with his family. Jackie had to have the guts to not fight back no matter how angry he became. All of this paid off because Jackie was given the opportunity to play for the Brooklyn Dodgers. He ended the segregation of baseball and was admired by not only African American children, but by white children as well.
