Présentation de l'éditeur

Never-before-published letters offer a rich portrait of the baseball star as a fearless advocate for racial justice at the highest levels of American politics
 
Jackie Robinson's courage on the baseball diamond is one of the great stories of the struggle for civil rights in America, and his Hall of Fame career speaks for itself. But we no longer hear Robinson speak for himself; his death at age fifty-three in 1972 robbed America of his voice far too soon.

In First Class Citizenship, Jackie Robinson comes alive on the page for the first time in decades. The scholar Michael G. Long has unearthed a remarkable trove of Robinson's correspondence with--and personal replies from--such towering figures as Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Hubert Humphrey, Nelson Rockefeller, and Barry Goldwater. These extraordinary conversations reveal the scope and depth of Robinson's effort during the 1950s and 1960s to rid America of racism.

Writing eloquently and with evident passion, Robinson charted his own course, offering his support to Democrats and to Republicans, questioning the tactics of the civil rights movement, and challenging the nation's leaders when he felt they were guilty of hypocrisy--or worse. Through his words as well as his actions, Jackie Robinson truly personified the "first class citizenship" that he considered the birthright of all Americans, whatever their race.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The remarkable correspondence of a remarkable man 12 mai 2008
Par Geoff Pietsch - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I was 9 years old, and living in Brooklyn, when Jackie Robinson broke in in 1947. I saw a few Dodger games - from the center field bleachers (only $.60) - and was a huge fan of Jackie's. Over the years I thought I'd kept up pretty well with his both his baseball career and his later business and political involvments. Nevertheless, this wonderful collection/selection of his correspondence, accurately sub-titled "The Civil Rights Letters of Jackie Robinson," just blew me away.
Let me be clear: This is not a book primarily for baseball fans, it is a book for all Americans - all people - who want to know more about both this remarkable man and many of the most prominent American leaders of the 1950s and '60s. Robinson corresponded often, and sometimes at considerable length, with Richard Nixon, Hubert Humphrey, Nelson Rockefeller, Martin Luther King, Jr., Dwight Eisenhower, Lyndon Johson, Barry Goldwater, and many others.
Michael Long, who edited this collection - and provides useful, brief introductions as needed - includes not only Robinson's letters but also many of the responses he received. As with Robinson's letters, these replies shed wonderful insight on the letter-writers. Almost always they are writing for their recipient, not for the public or posterity. I taught American History at a college prep school for 38 years; I thought I knew well the history of the Civil Rights era and the men who made it. It's rare at my age that I find a book that brings genuinely knew information and perspective which causes me to re-think my assessments of men and events. "First Class Citizenship" has done so. I very much hope it gains a wide audience. Readers will become more familiar not only with Jackie Robinson in all his passion and complexity and integrity but also with the men in power, good and not-so-good, who shaped the history of that tumultuous time.

Had to buy this for a class and it was written by the professor. Just another way for him to suck money from students.
