Summary Jackie Robinson's daughter shares memories of her father as a testament to his courage. From his baseball career and his legendary breaking of the color barrier in Major League Baseball, to afterwards, during his retirement from baseball, when he once tested the ice for her on pond at their Connecticut residence, even though he couldn't swim and was afraid of the water, she shows how he carried that same quality of quiet courage all through his life.
