Additional Course Details: 

This course will challenge students to re-examine the life and career of Jackie Robinson as he is recast as a Civil Rights Activist fighting against Plessy v. Ferguson and segregation.  While Robinson’s exploits on the field of baseball are legendary, his motivations for social change and his determination to drive that change in America are less well known.  Throughout this J-Term course, students will explore the implications of legal decisions and the relationship that sports plays in societal constructs.
