*HIST 430: Jackie Robinson, Baseball, and American Racism TR 12:30 PM -
2:10 PM *

This is a course that uses baseball to better understand racism and
antiracism in American history. Focusing on the life and career of Jackie
Robinson, the Brooklyn Dodger who broke baseball's color line in 1947, we
will examine the strenuous efforts by white owners to restrict Black
athletes from the major leagues, the impact of Robinson's efforts on
American life, and the legacy and memory of Robinson's achievements. We
will also examine the experience of other Black and Latino ballplayers as
well as the struggle for labor rights. This course will involve significant
reading, film analysis, and a research project. Upper-level, non-History
majors may take this course with the permission of the instructor.
