Jackie Robinson always loved sports, especially baseball. But he lived at a time before the civil rights movement, when the rules weren't fair to African Americans. Even though Jackie was a great athlete, he wasn't allowed on the best teams just because of his skin color. He became the first African American player in Major League Baseball, and his bravery changed history and led the way to equality in American sports. This picture-book biography has an inspiring message: anyone can be a hero.
