Playing for the People (Sequence)

Jackie Robinson's story is well known throughout many nations, and its not just because he was a great baseball player. It was because what he did for the people. Robinson's career all started when Branch Rickey was looking for the first black man to be in the MLB. Clyde Sukeforth, Rickey's assistant, found Robinson and asked him to meet with Rickey. Jackie thought this was a scam, but agreed to do it anyway. Rickey and Robinson met up, and Rickey told him everything. Jackie decided to adhere to not fight back against all the insults that would be thrown at him and signed a contract. That little meeting would end up making the US take a huge step closer to abolishing racism.
