Jackie Robinson Breaks the Color Barrier in 1947

Posted in Civil Rights, Sports on April 17, 2015 by mrkufs

Baseball was king following World War II. Forever, African-Americans were forced to play in their own segregated leagues. In 1947 the Brookyn Dodgers (Dem Bums) took a chance with their GM Branch Rickey picking Jackie to be the first. He faced some struggles but his resiliance paved the way for the Don Newcombe’s, Roy Campenella’s and Willie Mays’ to become the stars of the league. Baseball took the lead for the Civil Rights of the 1950’s and 1960’s events that followed.

  • I fully expect ALL (non-BOCES) students taking the May 8th exam to attend at least two classes a week. I also expect that each of you will devote at least 3 hours a week working with AMSCO and doing what works for you to review.  This could be 30 minutes a day or 3 hours on Sunday or whatever.
  • Please keep up with my website for updates and work.
  • I encourage you to divide chapters and create work, outlines, etc. and teach each other on your own time.
  • I also except that in-class work will be kept up with as well. Expect a similar schedule for May 11-June 15 for the Regents as well.
  • Opportunity comes to those who put in the hard work and effort.
