Have you ever heard of Jackie Robinson? He was the first African-American baseball player to play in the major leagues. Although this event took place over 50 years ago, When Jackie Met Hank, reminds us that black baseball players weren’t the only ones that had challenges. Hank Goldberg was a Jewish player. People called him names and were prejudiced against him, too. On May 17, 1947, Jackie and Hank collided during a baseball game. The fans in the stadium began to chant, “Fight, fight, fight.” What do you think happened? You will have to read the book to find out!
