Jackie Robinson went from a man that no white person liked to the majors. Jackie Robinson was the first ever African American baseball player. This book goes from when he was a child, to college, to the military, and lastly when he was in the majors. Jackie Robinson was one of the most controversial people ever to live. He helped African Americans be equal.

Why It was powerful

Like I said, Jackie Robinson helped African Americans be equal. He was a great baseball player with an insane batting average, and he helped African Americans be more equal. He lived a hard life to living a lot of kids dreams.
