Jackie Robinson

This image of Jackie Robinson, the first African American to be drafted to the Major Leagues from the Negro Leagues, is pretty infamous but it always moves me to see it. Whomever the photographer is, he caught such an intense moment. That one moment where fans are clenching their fists and screaming, and the players are so focused on making the play.

  1. I agree, great photo and a great American who continued to work in the civil rights movement after his playing days were over.
