Jackie Robinson was born January 31, 1919 in Cairo,Georgia.
Jackie had childhood friends but he also had a childhood bully too, who called him many slurs and the father started throwing rocks at Jackie.
Jackie would play sports such as basketball,football,and of course baseball which he was all very good at, and kids of all race and gender would always play, but it was different in the major leagues, or is it.
Jackie Robinson was allowed to play major league baseball for the Dodgers, but some disagreed with this.
Jackie was on defense when another player stepped on his Achilles injuring it, but his teammates helped him out.
Jackie was put down in history as one of the most influential men in America and would help many black people down the road to more and more freedom, to only help blacks but also the welfare of America.
