Jackie Robinson Integrates Major League Baseball (1947)
Segregated from the major leagues, professional African American baseball players participated in the Negro Leagues through World War II. In 1947, Branch Rickey, general manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers, called up Jackie Robinson from the team’s minor league farm club in Montreal. A star athlete at UCLA and a World War II serviceman, Robinson stoically accepted jeers and racial epithets and won that year’s National League Rookie of the Year award for his athletic achievements. Through his skills and endurance of insults, Robinson, later inducted into baseball’s Hall of Fame, broke the color line in baseball.
