The Full Story

The discrimination of skin color had been prevalent in the country since a long time. A sport is an arena where there should not be discrimination of any sort. It is a subject to be enjoyed by people irrespective of caste, creed, or color.

Thanks to the efforts of Brooklyn president, Branch Rickey, and the determined spirit of Robinson. In a couple of years, the newest Dodger, after constant trials and tribulations, failed player boycotts and dangerous fan outrage,  became the recruit of the Year. At the same time he led his team to the World Series and his countrymen to a level of social liberation.
