Show off your class's knowledge about American hero Jackie Robinson's life on and off the field. Play for prizes and learn new content about Jackie’s childhood, all-star athletic career, and post-baseball work as you compete with peer classes across the country. In this fun, interactive virtual game, participants will see primary sources including photographs, documents and video clips and think about Robinson's legacy and relevance today.

  • The game is scheduled for 12:30pm Eastern Time. Expected duration: 45 minutes
