Jackie Robinson Breaks the Color Line 75 Years -- April 15, 2022

Minneapolis Star, 14-April-1947

75 years ago today, Jackie Robinson played his first major league game for the Brooklyn Dodgers, breaking the color bar that had excluded African-Americans from organized baseball since the late Nineteenth Century. He went 0 for 3, but no one cared that day. The next day he scored the winning run in a game against the Boston Braves.
