The paper uses Jules Tygiel's "Baseball's Great Experiment, Jackie Robinson and His Legacy" to discuss race relations in America, Jim Crow laws, and how Robinson helped to dismantle aspects of racial prejudice and discrimination.
From the Paper:"In "Baseball's Great Experiment, Jackie Robinson and His Legacy", Jules Tygiel illustrates how one professional American sport, baseball, used its influence to make a dramatic statement regarding race relations. Branch Rickey, the president of the Brooklyn Dodgers, was responsible for bringing Jackie Robinson into major league baseball as its first black player. He was willing to confront racism and it is to his courage in challenging an entrenched social ideology that much of Robinson's own success is owed."
