Remembering Jackie: A Conversation With Sharon Robinson
On the 100th birthday of one of the most iconic figures in sports, Newsy spoke with Jackie Robinson's daughter about the impact his legacy still has.
The Hall of Famers will come and go in baseball, but there may never be a more iconic name in the sport — or sports in general — than Jackie Robinson.
Two decades before the Civil Rights Act, Robinson broke the color barrier in baseball as the first black man to play Major League Baseball.
On his 100th birthday, "The Briefing's" Jay Strubberg interviewed his daughter Sharon Robinson about her father's legacy and the positive things the Jackie Robinson Foundation is still doing to help others.
"The Briefing" airs Mondays through Fridays from 1-3 p.m. ET on the Newsy channel. Click here to check local listings.
