A Whirling Demon: Jackie Robinson Steals Home & History
Columbia Public Library, Friends Room

Jackie Robinson's uncanny ability to steal home plate remains under-appreciated in history. Each steal left an indelible mark in the minds of opposing players and fans. Each attempt was the manifestation of his aggressive playing style and personality, honed by his athletic (amateur and professional) experiences and his unique personal experiences as a black man in segregated America. This special presentation by Dr. Raymond Doswell offers context and comparisons to other legendary players and highlights examples of Robinson's signature playing style and his use of the stolen base to achieve victory and establish self-identity. Dr. Doswell is vice president of curatorial services at the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, Inc. in Kansas City. Adults and teens.
