About the event

Jackie Robinson: The Life & Legacy

This program will center around American sports icon and civil rights activist Jackie Robinson. Our event will feature a robust discussion on the life and legacy of Jackie Robinson while touching on the contributions and subsequent importance of the Negro Leagues (from which Jackie began his career), Branch Rickey, the importance of allyship, and the impact that integration in baseball had on sports (and subsequent integration in other leagues) had/has on American culture at large. In addition to these topics, via a group discussion, we will address attempts to whitewash Jackie’s legacy, both during his lifetime and after his passing, and how these attempts have affected his image in the modern day.
