On his first day on the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947, Jackie Robinson changed history, paving the way not only for the desegregation of the sport but also the launch of the modern civil rights era. Join Robinson's daughter Sharon Robinson, Vice Chair of the Jackie Robinson Foundation; Jonathan Eig, author of Opening Day: The Story of Jackie Robinson’s First Season, and journalist and author William C. Rhoden for a conversation about diversity in the dugout and Robinson's career, life, and legacy, all moderated by journalist Budd Mishkin.
