Even though Jackie was a great athlete, he wasn't allowed on the best teams just because of the color of his skin. Jackie knew that sports were best when everyone, of every color, played together. He became the first black player in Major League Baseball, and his bravery changed African-American history and led the way to equality in all sports in America.

Great Family Read

My family bought the Martin Luther King Jr. Book for our kids to bring to school and ended up buying almost the whole series. This book like all of the others are a great read. It has a lot of facts and information. Almost like a child encyclopedia but very entertaining.
