Everybody’s Hero: The Jackie Robinson Story
Grades 3+ / 60 Min.
At the start of the summer of 1947, television was brand new, the sound barrier had not been broken, and baseball was a white man’s game. By the time fall arrived, all that had changed. President Truman addressed the nation for the first time on TV, Chuck Yeager flew faster than sound, and Jackie Robinson became the first African-American to play major league baseball. This play with music by Mad River Theater Works shows the events that shaped Jackie Robinson’s character, his struggle to gain acceptance, and the tremendous obstacles he overcame on his way to changing the face of our nation and our national pastime.
