Read the paragraph about Jackie Robinson and the table below it.

During the 1940s, Major League Baseball remained segregated. Jackie was drafted by Branch Rickey to change all of that and integrate baseball. Branch knew Jackie would face some tough times, and Branch made him promise not to fight back when he faced this racism, which often came from his own teammates. He and his family even received terrible threats from those in the crowd. Despite all of this, on April 15, 1947, Jackie became the first African-American athlete to play in the major leagues. He led in stolen bases and had an outstanding batting average, earning the honor of Rookie of the Year. Despite the ongoing racism that Jackie faced from some teammates, crowds, and players from other teams, he earned the National League’s Most Valuable Player award in 1949. In his decade-long career with the Dodgers, Jackie helped his team win the National League pennant several times. In 1955, he helped them achieve the greatest victory of all: the World Series.

    5. Read the short passage about the life of Jackie Robinson.

    Jackie Robinson was born on January 31, 1919, in Cairo, Georgia. Prior to his well-known career in baseball, Jackie attended both Pasadena Community College and University of California, as well as served in the United States Army. During Jackie’s time in the army, he was arrested and court-martialed for refusing to move to the back of a segregated bus. Ultimately, he was acquitted of these charges and received an honorable discharge. It was after this discharge that Jackie began playing Major League Baseball.

    During Jackie’s time, leagues were still segregated, and Jackie was drafted by Branch Rickey to change all of that and integrate baseball. Despite the ongoing racism Jackie faced (often from his very own teammates), he became the first African-American athlete to play in the major leagues, even earning the distinguished honor of Rookie of the Year. In addition to breaking the color barrier in the world of athletics, Jackie went on to fight for civil rights in all aspects of life. He did not believe that enough was being done to advance the cause for civil rights, and he dedicated a large portion of his life to testifying against discrimination and sending letters to every American president who held office between 1956 and 1972 to express this discontent.
