"There's not an American in this country that's free until all of us are free."
No sporting icon of the 20th Century sacrificed more for society than Jackie Robinson. No one in the game wears #42 anymore, out of eternal respect for the man who in 1947 broke baseball’s color line.
Jackie Robinson endured inhumane abuse from racist fans, media, opponents, and even some teammates, but he steadfastly built a legacy as a great ballplayer who symbolized so much more than can be contained by a ballpark. He embodied progress in baseball and society. Martin Luther King Jr. lauded Robinson as a man who “challenged the dark skies of intolerance and frustration.”
But, Jackie was much more than an athlete. These days, the idea of an athlete branching out into the business world is expected. Whether it's Lebron James and his digital media brand - 'The Uninterrupted' or Shaq with his countless ventures - it all started with #42. Jackie was a pioneer in the business world - becoming the first black U.S. vice president of a national corporation. With ventures as varied as coffee, banking, and construction, he paved the way for subsequent generations of athletes and entertainers of color to have multi-hyphenate careers.
