On April 15, 1947 Jackie Robinson first put on a Brooklyn Dodgers jersey and broke the color barrier in professional baseball. To celebrate, we are screening Ken Burns’s documentary on the life and legacy of this American icon over the course of two nights. We’re honored to welcome co-directors, producers, and writers Sarah Burns and David McMahon to introduce Part One, which looks at Robinson’s journey from his birth in rural Georgia through his successful first season with the Dodgers.
