Renowned broadcaster Scott Simon celebrates Robinson's historical achievement and reveals how Robinson's heroism brought the country face-to-face with the question of racial equality. He deftly traces the journey of the rookie who became Rookie of the Year, recalling the taunts and threats, the stolen bases and the slides to home plate, the trials and triumphs.
