Jackie and Rachel Robinson

Jackie Robinson epitomizes good and important black, and American, history.  The movie "42" was a powerful and significant film.  Here, the real Jackie and Rachel Robinson are sitting on their front steps of their home in Brooklyn as Jackie Jr. drinks a glass of milk, on his tricycle.  This shot was taken in July, 1949, just 24 short months after a courageous Jackie and a visionary Branch Rickey made history by breaking baseball's color barrier, a very significant event in American history.
