Book by Mary Hall Surface/Conceived by Gayle Cornelison In this fast paced show, we meet Jackie Robinson, the man who broke the color barrier in professional baseball. Audiences will enjoy this portrayal of his determination, despite seemingly insurmountable racism. The story is driven by Branch Rickey, the owner of the Dodgers who dared to sign Robinson, as he guides Robinson while believing in him and his talent. Many characters move in and out of the story that both support Robinson, and attempt to keep him down. Robinson’s use of nonviolence and unquestionable talent challenged the rules of segregation, and therefore impacted American life. This show fits in perfectly with lessons in: BULLYING, MAKING A DIFFERENCE, HEROES, ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS, INVESTIGATING PERSONAL STRENGTH AND DETERMINATION, FACING INJUSTICES.
