Best Answer

Jackie Robinson was born during the time when African Americans were largely discrimintated against and he was civil rights activist in addition to a Baseball player. In addition to being mistreated for a silly thing such as skin color, it was hard on him because his single mother was left to provide for his family on her own which meant they had little money to spend on the necessities like food, shelter and clothes. Fun Fact: Jackie Robinson was born on January 31, 1919 and Jackie's brother Matthew won the silver metal at the 200-meter dash in the Olympic in 1936.
