Director Ken Burns examines the life of Jack Roosevelt Robinson, who crosses the color barrier to become the first black man to play Major League Baseball when he takes the field for the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947. The documentary follows Robinson's determination to perform and play the game, despite death threats on and off the field. Using his fame and popularity to speak out against injustice and prejudice, Robinson perseveres in the fight against inequality and discrimination. The program also touches on Robinson's life after baseball, including his fight against diabetes.
Six years in the making, Ken Burns' seven-part documentary series chronicles the horrifying historical impact of World War II from an American perspective by focusing on the personal stories of private citizens from four American towns: Waterbury, Conn., Mobile, Ala., Sacramento, Calif., and Luverne, Minn. Together, these four communities serve as a tapestry of the ordeal Americans went through during the four years of the war, as witnesses share their own vivid and often harrowing accounts of how the war dramatically altered their own lives as well as those of their friends and neighbors.
