Editorial Reviews

Review

Michael G. Long employs Robinson's
own words in his edited volume Beyond Home Plate:
Jackie Robinson on Life after Baseball to stitch
together an extraordinary life that, in many ways,
became even more extraordinary after Robinson's
retirement from the game. Mining through ten years of
nationally syndicated newspaper columns that Robinson
wrote, first for the New York Post from 1959 to
1960 and, afterward, for the New York Amsterdam
News from 1962 to 1968, Beyond Home Plate introduces
its readers to the familiar-Robinson's love of
the game of baseball and devotion to his family,
friends, and supporters-and the not-so-familiar-
Robinson's foray into the arena of national politics and
punditry in the midst of, arguably, the most turbulent
decade of American history: the Sixties. (Mark Rubinfeld, Westminster College―Salt Lake City The Journal of American Culture)

About the Author

Michael Long is the author and editor of several books on politics, religion, and civil rights. He is the editor, most recently, of Marshalling Justice: The Early Civil Rights Letters of Thurgood Marshall (Amistad/HarperCollins).

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
An excellent supplement to Michael Long's "First Class Citizenship: The Civil Rights Letters of Jackie Robinson." Taken together, both books demonstrate Jackie Robinson's vital role as an informal civil rights leader and support Robinson's often quoted comment that "life is not a spectator sport."
