Just Yesterday World Series PosterRegular price $24.00
While African Americans fought and died for their country in both World War I and II, Black Americans weren’t allowed to play Major League Baseball until 1947. Hall of fame player Jackie Robinson was the first Black American to play Major League Baseball when he started at first base for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. That same year, Jackie Robinson and Dan Bankhead were the first African Americans to play in the 1947 World Series, two years after World War II.
