About this title


An intensely personal and candid memoir of a father by his daughter discusses life with the legendary Jackie Robinson, the responsibilities of being part of an African-American family in the public eye, and the impact on her and her family. $50,000 ad/promo. Tour.


This memoir by the daughter of one of America's most beloved sports heroes appears just in time for the 50th anniversary of the desegregation of major league baseball. Those expecting to find a darker side of the taciturn, dignified Jackie Robinson will be disappointed: Robinson, according to his daughter, was a devoted father and a civil rights activist whose messy rifts with more outspoken black leaders like Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X are barely mentioned here. Robinson was evidently a complex, deeply reserved man, and it seems likely that even his daughter, whose affection for her famous dad is obvious, did not know him well.
