Essay Topic: The Evolution of Race in Baseball

For my essay, I plan on delving into the topic of how the perception of racial integration in baseball has evolved over time. More specifically, I want to delve into how specific athletes such as Jackie Robinson blazed a trail of racial diversity during a time in which integration and racism were also prominent in American society. I plan on tying the two primary points of specific athletes who endured racial hardships in the MLB with the current events of the time and how that relationship helped spark a more accepting outlook on athletes of varying ethnicities.
