    Mark Alvarez For my summer reading I read Jackie Robinson. Before Jackie was born his grandfather was a slave in a Georgia plantation. Jackie was born on January 31, 1919. After six months his father left and his dad left 4 other children for jackie's mom to support them. Jackie's mom was only thirty years old and her half-brother lived in California and she heard that the west better for her sons. she raised money by selling all of her possessions.

  • Book Review Of Jackie Robinson - 1,439 words
    The great American pastime of baseball has had its share of amazing athletes that not only dazzled fans with their play, but revolutionized the sport with their personality, charisma, and courage. Babe Ruth, with his charm as well as his bat, gave baseball a personality, Lou Gehrig, the Iron Horse, gave baseball a tough image, and Joe DiMaggio, with his 56 game hitting streak captivated the entire country. In a similar way, Jackie Robinson added diversity to the game of baseball by breaking the color barrier. However, in his case, the story is much different. When Babe Ruth was on route to hitting 60 home runs, nearly all the baseball world supported him. When Joe DiMaggio got hit after hit, ...

  • Reaction The Jackie Robinson Story - 960 words
    Upon viewing the film, The Jackie Robinson Story, one can only ask the question was it really like that? Was Jackie harrassed and tormented by virtually everyone but a select few. This paper will discuss the effectiveness or non-effectiveness of the film, and include ideas based on the whether or not the film accurately portrays Jackies life story. I will not only discuss the events of his childhood but also his life as a grown individual. I should first start out by saying that in my opinion the show was very effective at the way that society in general percieved Black Americans. At the beginning of the show, it shows many young boys receiving ground balls from their baseball coach. A young ...

  • Jackie Robinson - 1,100 words
    In 1947 Jackie Robinson was signed by the Brooklyn Dodgers and was the first black to do so. Before that there were separate leagues. Segregation was a big issue and Jackie made it even bigger by calling for it to stop and letting every one have a chance to show their talent. He led the path for a less difficult life for blacks, but that path had hate, misery, and pain as obstacles and only a special person like Robinson could overcome those obstacles. Jack Roosevelt Robinson was born on January 31, 1919, in a small farmhouse near Cairo, Georgia. He had a tough up bringing and did not have good housing. "Jackie and his family lived on a white owned farm and his father worked on the farm"(Fal ...

He had a grandfather that was a slave, Jackies dad was a sharecropper and Mallie, Jackies mother, was a maid. His dad ran away from the family when Jackie was only an infant.

  • Baseball Legend Jackie Robinson - 1,776 words
    The Roaring Twenties of this country was a time when the entire sports world blew up into the major worldwide business that it is now. Baseball was one sport that really profited from the countrys sporting obsession, and baseball became one of the most popular sporting events to attend. Not only was it a game played by adults but it was also a family event that entire families could go to. By the beginning of the decade baseball had its first $100,000 deal when George Herman Ruth was traded from the Boston Red Sox to the New York Yankees for $125,000. The game became more than a game, it became a business. It was the emergence of the superstar, and players were making a living off of being a ...

  • The Story Of Jackie Robinson: Break Through To The Big Leagues - 583 words
    When I chose this book I wasn't sure if Jackie Robinson was the kind of person that could have an impact on the world but as I read it I was positive he was. Jackie had a hard childhood. His father left one day to go to Memphis to look for a new job and never came home. Being the youngest child Jackie could not help his mom make money like his older brothers and sister but whenever he got the chance to help he did. Since Jackie's mom worked all day and there was no one to stay home with him, Jackie went to school with his older sister Willa Mae. While she was in class he was outside playing in the sandbox. His older brother Mack was the athlete of the family while Jackie was little. He came ...

  • Jackie Robinson 3 - 1,162 words
    Jackie Robinson: Breaking the Color Barrier It's April 15, 1947 opening day at Ebbets Field, Brooklyn. Many people have turned out to see one man, the first black person to ever play in major league baseball. He is setting new standards for all blacks now and those to come. His name is Jack Roosevelt Robinson. We all wish him well and hope he can surmount the racial differences. At this time it was unheard of to have a black person treated equally to a white person, more the less it was highly unlikely to have a black person play on the same field as a white person. But for one man who stands alone Jackie Robinson's conquest to break through the color barrier with the help of Branch Rickey h ...

  • The Legacy Of Jackie Robinson - 657 words
    Robinson was an undeniably great player who had some of his best years stolen from him. He was a speedster who led his team to six World Series, won Rookie of the Year honors, an MVP award and was a six-time All-Star. But it's not because of his marvelous career that Jackie's number 42 is retired in every major league ballpark. It's because on a chilly afternoon in 1947 at Ebbets Field, Robinson took the diamond for the Dodgers to become the first black man to play in a major league baseball game in the modern era. His stellar play and moreover, his poise under fire paved the way for baseball integration, as barriers broke down in baseball, they also started to crumble in society at large. W ...

  • Road To Brown - 656 words
    The Road to Brown was lead by a man named Charles Houston. Houston devoted his entire life to try and get equal treatment for blacks. But in order to begin the road to equality, a previous decision, Plessy v. Ferguson, which gave the separate but equal clause, had to be overturned. This was eventually accomplished in the Supreme Court decision of Brown v. the Board of Education. Brown v. the Board of Education was the result of many court decisions and developments in Civil Rights prior to 1954. Many developments in the area of Civil Rights helped contribute to the end of separate but equal. In 1947 Jackie Robinson integrated baseball by becoming the first black to play in the major league. ...

    When youre in the military, youre presented a salute upon which respect and dignity imply. Unfortunately, this wasnt always the case. All of that was hastily forgotten. He barely missed a court-martial and was honorably discharged shortly thereafter (Davis 1). Would you believe that it was because he refused to move from a front seat to the rear seat of an army bus? He was a legitimate soldier in the U.S. Army. He enlisted after the Pearl Harbor bombing and was promoted to Lieutenant three years later. However, unlike protester Rosa Parks, being instructed by a higher-ranking (and white) officer meant a direct order, so he moved to the back. Some thanks to a man anxious to help fight for the ...

    ... al statement in a speech in Paris. Robeson, alongside Robinson, stated (something to the effect) that, it would be unthinkable for black Americans to fight in a war against Russia because blacks were treated better in Russia than they were in the United States (Scott 227). In retaliation, the House Un-American Activities Committee assembled hearings in which they subpoenaed other prominent African Americans to testify about Robesons statement. The first one they called was Jackie Robinson. Not eager to testify, but knowing full well that refusing to cooperate with the HUAC might result in the termination of his athletic career, Jackie, with encouragement by the Dodger organization, agree ...

  • The 50s Civil Rights Movment - 940 words
    Returning from WWII, black Americans, just as those three decades prior, expected to find America a land of equality for all people and specifically a land endowed with increased black civil rights. Although the late 1940's and 1950's are not generally considered a period of social advancement for blacks, the decade and a half after World War II ultimately proved to be a very significant chapter in the history of black civil rights and a pivotal stepping stone for the drastic social uproar of the next decade. In 1950, America counted fifteen million black citizens, two thirds of whom still lived lives in the segregated south. Bound by rigid Jim Crow laws, the black view of life appeared blea ...

  • Mauhammad Ali - 1,036 words
    African-Americans have been regarded as the lower caste in society by their white counterparts since they were brought to America via slave ships. African-Americans have been also been ostracized and socially persecuted by their white counterparts in the past (Jim Crow Laws) and even today. However, African-Americans are 'socially acceptable' by society for their athletic prowess and achievements in the arena of sports. How can this be? Our class has been discussing this theme all semester. This is an example of the relationship between race, sports, and society. Sports allows individuals regarded as 'lesser individuals' to enter spaces previously occupied by people regarded as 'the upper ec ...

  • Worth Dying For - 1,088 words
    There are those who defy the laws of time by immortalizing themselves by a single or numerous feats displaying selflessness and courage. Commenting on such individuals, Theodore Roosevelt said: The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat. These people ar ...

    The racial situation in America had changed since Richard Wright's time. Although, racism will always be around it has greatly improved.
