To millions of people, Jackie Robinson was a sports and civil rights hero. To Sharon Robinson, he was all that — and Dad. From the unique perspective that only a daughter could have, she serves as a personal tour guide through the nine heart-felt, hard-won values that helped Jackie achieve his goals.
Jackie¹s values are brought to life through the powerful words of other heroes and pioneers, including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Oprah Winfrey, and Christopher Reeve.
