Branch Rickey saw the need and found it a privilege to make an effort to right the wrong in part baseball had created as well as society as whole and was willing to risk everything in what he believed. And he did it with one man, Jackie Robinson. Today we remember his legacy and that of the great spiritual leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who both faced humiliation, insult and physical harm in an effort to gain equality, not just for themselves but for the millions without it. With this post we honor both great men who took a stand to injustice and believe through their self-sacrifice they could change the world...and they did!
