    with Jackie Robinson about playing baseball in the Dodgers’ organization. Mr. Rickey asks

    Jackie Robinson if he has the “guts” not to fight back. What does he mean by this? Why

    does he ask Jackie Robinson to do this?

     

     

    2. Throughout the movie, Wendell Smith (the African American reporter) chronicles Jackie

    Robinson’s first season in Major League Baseball. Why does he have such a personal stake
