LOS ANGELES - April 9, 2021 - PRLog -- April 18, 1946, 75 years ago Jackie Robinson was signed by the Dodgers for their farm team the Montreal Royals. Since then, the one theme in the mountains of films, biopic, documentaries, commemoration events, books, newspaper articles and radio and TV telecasts on Robinson has focused almost exclusively on Robinson's historic cracking the color barrier in Major League Baseball. This new production I Never Had it Made-The Forgotten Jackie Robinson examines Robinson's ferocious, relentless fight against

"This is not a baseball story. I repeat this is not a baseball story about Jackie Robinson. That story has been told endless times," says Hutchinson Productions President, Earl Ofari Hutchinson, "On the 75th anniversary of Jackie's initial crack of the color barrier in MLB, this is a story about the Jackie Robinson who many still know little about. It is the story of Jackie Robinson the civil rights activist, fighter, and champion." This new production I Never Had it Made-The Forgotten Jackie Robinson examines Robinson's ferocious, relentless fight against racial and economic injustice with footage of his speeches, talks, marches, and writings. The film revisits the block where Jackie lived for a time at the start of his pro ball career in the late 1940sin South Los Angeles to tell that story.

Robinson saw things much differently. He repeatedly said: "I cannot stand and sing the anthem. I cannot salute the flag. I know that I am a Black man in a white world. I never had it made." Robinson tells that story of his post baseball relentless fight against racial and economic injustice in his autobiography, letters, and columns in the New York Post and the Amsterdam News.

I Never Had it Made-The Forgotten Jackie Robinson tells the story of the man who got the break of the century when he was chosen to crack the color bar in baseball. He was courted by politicians, showered with persona] honors, and attained a measure of financial success. Yet at the end of his life he realized that many Blacks had continued to lose ground: "I can't believe that I have it made while so many of my Black brothers and sisters are hungry, inadequately housed, insufficiently clothed, denied their dignity, live in slums or barely exist on welfare." Robinson until the end insisted, he never had it made. He'd likely say the same today. This is the Robinson I Never Had it Made-The Forgotten Jackie Robinson remembers.
