"They crossed the Rio Grande with the conquistadores, fought at Bunker Hill, shot the rapids of the Snake with Lewis and Clark, fell before the Confederate fortress at Port Hudson. They chased Geronimo, stood beside Teddy Roosevelt at San Juan Hill, won the Croix de Guerre on the Western Front. They blasted Japanese planes out of the sky over Pearl Harbor, saved their platoon in the mountainous regions of Korea, died in the jungles of Vietnam. Their names are lost in most of the annals of American history, their deeds unsung--Estevanico, Peter Salem, Jordan B. Noble, York, André Cailloux, Emanuel Stance, Edward L.

In 1947, Jackie Robinson changed the game of baseball by becoming the first black player on a modern day major league team. Jackie made history with the Brooklyn Dodgers and this story is about Jackie and the seventeen players who followed him. These Black Heroes challenged the status quo and policies of team owners and were part of the first wave of black players who played on the sixteen major league teams that existed in 1947. It was not until 1959 (three years after Jackie retired) that the last of the sixteen teams added a black player to their roster.
