During the 1940’s African Americans and whites were segregated by law in the United States, but sports had seemed to be the one area that had mixed views. Some people had thought it should strictly be for whites to play professionally, but others had thought professional sports should be integrated (Lipsyte, 40). Branch Rickey, general manager and president of the Brooklyn Dodgers, was one those people who thought that sports should be integrated. On April 10th of 1947, Rickey had made a bold move and signed 4-star athlete African American baseball player Jack Roosevelt Robinson to the Brooklyn Dodgers (biography.com). On April 15, 1947 Jackie Robinson made history by playing his first game of his 10 year hall of fame career. After baseball, Robinson was still making history by becoming a civil rights activist, political figure, and vice president of a major corporation (Milbert, 369). As a result of Jackie Robinson’s career on and off the baseball diamond, he changed the landscape of sports, rights for African Americans, and society.
Jackie Robinson was also known as Jack Rossevelt Robinson. Jackie Robinson had very many struggles; Jackie was drafted and assigned to Fort Riley, Kansas, where he faced racial discrimination on a daily basis, he was the first African American in baseball, transformed the face of American sports forever, and his father abandoned the family when Jackie was an infant, and forced his mother and four older siblings to join the "Great Migration" of the time and move to California. Jackie was born on January 31, 1919. He was born into a family of sharecroppers in Cairo, Georgia. It is still said that he never "completely" knew his real father, but there are other stories to. Jackie's real father is also said to have left the family the same year he was born, 1919. About 3 months after his birth, he left to go to the Great Migration, and he never returned. At the same time as all that was going on, he was dealing with lots of racism and torture. The white men were a lot more educated than Jackie and other black men, yet black men were still very educated. All these struggles are just the ones in his early years, the struggles that are more known happen later when he becomes very well known by most whites, yet just because he was well known does not mean that they all liked him.

The Cass and Cabot Street neighborhood of Portsmouth is located in the western part of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The area is part of Portsmouth’s West End, a larger defined neighborhood in the city. While there is some ambiguity in officially defining the Cass and Cabot Street neighborhood boundaries, the geographic area which it covers shares a common feeling and cohesiveness that gives it a distinct sense of place. Throughout its historic development, it has undergone several changes in name and in character. Today, it is most commonly referred to as the Goodwin Park neighborhood, named after Ichabond Goodwin, a New Hampshire governor and merchant in Portsmouth. A distinct place since it’s early development in the 1700’s, the neighborhood still retains much of its original character, but has kept with the times.
