Jackie and Rachel Robinson


Rachel was acutely nervous when she met Jackie Robinson for the first time at UCLA. Although he participated in four varsity sports and was generally known as a big man on campus, he seemed bashful and modest, which endeared him to Rachel. Later in life, Rachel became a true asset to Jackie, remaining strong in the face of the brutal racism and frightening threats that arose when he joined the Brooklyn Dodgers. Always presenting a united front, the couple overcame hardships and personal tragedy by seeking comfort in one another. After Jackie's death, Rachel established the Jackie Robinson Foundation.
