"The Life and Faith of Jackie Robinson"

I first read this article a few months ago and found it a great read. It came to mind again today as I was discussing Jim Crow laws and desegregation during a History lesson with one of my children.

The author, George Mitrovich, focuses on the role Robinson's religious faith played in helping him deal with the racism he encountered as the first black player in the major leagues. It gave me new insight into Robinson and is quite moving.
