Thursday, February 11th at 6:30 p.m.

Robinson also wrote a nationally syndicated column, founded a bank, appeared frequently on FACE THE NATION, served as a sports team's general manager and league commissioner, was an influencer of Presidents, Governors, and Senators as an informal Civil Rights activist. It's time to hear more about #42 beyond his Brooklyn Dodger exploits. In this presentation John Vorperian, President of the White Plains Historical Society, will discuss Jackie Robinson's accomplishments in addition to breaking Baseball's Color line.
