Jackie Robinson: An Intimate Memoir

Jackie Robinson: An Intimate Memoir Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the spring of 1947, Jackie Robinson played his first game with the Brooklyn Dodgers, breaking down baseballs decades-old color barrier and changing the face of the game forever. In this intimate portrait, Robinsons widow, Rachel, tells her husbands story—and that of her life with him—from her unique perspective, comple­mented by 301 black-and-white photographs from her own collection. Now back in print with a new jacket, this classic book is a moving tribute to a remarkable man seen through the eyes of an equally remarkable woman.

About the Author

In 1973 she founded the Jackie Robinson Foundation, a not-for-profit organization provid­ing educational and leadership opportunities for minority students. In 2005, she accepted the Congressional Medal of Honor on behalf of Jackie Robinson. She has two children and fifteen grandchildren.
