Mike Wiley provides a glimpse of Jackie Robinson's life during a bygone era of separate and unequal locker rooms, of whites only hotels, and of restaurants where only a back door was opened for colored athletics. A star player who was showered with adulation on the field, Robinson became a second-class citizen when he walked off the diamond.
