The Jackie Robinson Story

Written by Mary Hall Surface

February 2 – 18, 2018

 Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in 1947 and showed a segregated country that the talent of the player -- and not the color of his skin -- are what make him a valuable member of a team. Robinson faced overwhelming prejudice with perseverance and dignity, and his courage, along with the courage of family and teammates, tells a story that will generate empathy, engagement and pride for the students of your classroom.

Themes: Civil rights, segregation in U.S. history, personal courage, teamwork
