Jackie Robinson made history by becoming the first African-American to play on an all-white baseball team. Reading this reminded me of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Rosa Parks, and more. All of those people were "firsts" of something, and that itself is inspiring.
I love how this biography does not only touch upon Robinson's life and career, but it also touches upon segregation. I could see this book being taught during Black History Month, or truly any time of the year. ( )
