Description

With every step in his journey, Jackie Robinson strived for the high ground, for fairness and impact. He demonstrated courage and patience, purpose and humility. Robinson ventured into unprecedented minefields, believing they should be traversed and knowing it was worth every risk to correct the status woes. Fortitude offers nine snapshots of Jackie Robinson from events famous and obscure, nine examples of victory through dignity, tests of time in which his soul proved consistent and triumphant. The man who made 42 the most significant number in sports, transcending fields of play, had an unsurpassable supply of fortitude from beginning to the too-early end.

This enhanced digital edition features more than 25 minutes of video, including rare archival footage, career highlights and some of baseball's current stars sharing their thoughts about Jackie.
