Jackie Robinson: A Game Apart

JRChapel in the Pines presents Mike Wiley as “Jackie Robinson:  A Game Apart” on  Sunday, November 13, at 4:00 p.m.

Experience this dynamic one-man show that explores Jackie Robinson’s life during the era of separate and unequal locker rooms, whites-only hotels, and restaurants with a back door for colored athletes to enter.  Witness the humiliation of a star player, who was showered with adulation on the field but reduced to a second-class citizen the moment he walked off the diamond.  Meet Jackie’s compatriots, who fought the same battles between the end zones.  Inside the ring, and around the track.  Don’t miss this powerful less of courage through dedication, perserverance and leadership.
