I Never Had It Made
An Autobiography of Jackie Robinson
Breaking the color barrier in baseball was just the beginning for Jackie Robinson. His autobiography, I Never Had It Made, details his early life and influences, his army service challenging Jim Crow laws, and finally, his history-changing stint as the first black man to play in the major leagues. But it doesn't stop there - this inspiring story also covers Robinson's post-baseball life, including his political aspirations, friendships with civil rights leaders, and a troubled relationship with his son. A must-read for sports fans and anyone interested in the history of racial equality.
