About this title

Synopsis:

To commemorate the sixtieth anniversary of the breaking of baseball's color barrier, an exploration of Jackie Robinson's impact and legacy by the people whose lives were transformed by his courage

When Jackie Robinson joined the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947, he forever changed the game of baseball -- and America itself. In After Jackie, author Cal Fussman traces Robinson's enormous legacy in sports, politics, and the civil rights movement through the men (and women) who came after him. With moving and intimate interviews of more than one hundred former major league players of African-American descent, as well as such luminaries as Jimmy Carter, Muhammad Ali, and Walter Cronkite, among others, After Jackie recalls the day one man altered history for so many, and the history that followed.

About the Author:

Author Cal Fussman is uniquely qualified to bring After Jackie to vivid life. As a writer for ESPN The Magazine and Esquire, he has in recent years transformed oral history into a virtual art form, conducting probing interviews with many of the men who have shaped America's last half century: Jimmy Carter, Robert DeNiro, Jack Welch, Muhammad Ali, General Tommy Franks, Robert McNamara, Donald Trump, Ted Kennedy, Sumner Redstone, George Steinbrenner, Jeff Bezos, Al Pacino and Rudy Giuliani to name a few. In the world of sport, he has profiled Yao Ming, Serena Williams and LeBron James. A graduate of the University of Missouri Journalism School in 1978, Fussman has swum over an 18-foot Tigershark, boxed against world champion Julio Cesar Chavez, run the New York marathon and received nearly perfect scores as a contestant at the Jack Daniel's World Championship barbecue tournament. He lives with his family in Chapel Hill, N.C.
