Product Description
 

This graphic nonfiction series presents true sports stories of grit, leadership, and resistance. Follow legendary athletes through their early years and as they went pro, all while pushing to change the world around them.

In an era of discrimination, Jackie Robinson broke Major League Baseball's race barrier. Facing harassment, he stayed focused on the game, becoming the MLB Rookie of the Year in 1947 and later a baseball legend.

Before Robinson took his place at first base, the majors discriminated against African American athletes, denying them a chance to compete. Despite facing harassment from fans and other players, Robinson stayed focused on the game, becoming the MLB Rookie of the Year in 1947 and later a baseball legend. This graphic biography follows Robinson's time on semi-pro teams, his days in the US military, and his history-making experience with the Brooklyn Dodgers.
