by | Read by Ossie Davis

Biography & Memoir • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1972

This autobiography is more than the story of the first African-American to play major-league baseball. It's the story of a man of courage and conviction, from his early days in Los Angeles to the days when he worked for the NAACP, supported Richard Nixon, and battled diabetes. It's a treat to hear Ossie Davis read Robinson's words. Davis's pace is sure and even. His deep voice resonates with a rich smoothness. The abridgment has been done with skill, giving assurance that none of the pivotal points of Robinson's life have been overlooked. P.B.J. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 96]
