Jackie Robinson DVD
From director Ken Burns comes this powerful look at the baseball legend who broke the sport’s color barrier in 1947. Enduring verbal and even physical abuse from opponents and death threats from fans, Jackie Robinson’s quiet courage united his Brooklyn Dodgers team and moved the nation, but his role as a civil rights icon put him at odds with more militant activists in the 1960s. Rare photos and interviews with family members and teammates bring Robinson’s stormy life on and off the diamond into focus. 4 hrs. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English, Spanish; outtakes; featurette.
