CITIZENSHIP

The state of being vested with rights, privileges, and duties.

This clip talks about Jackie Robinson’s contributions to society as an original Civil Rights leader.  It touches on the fact that Robinson’s contributions to society, and to the world, took place well before Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, and the Supreme Court ruling in Brown vs. Education making segregation illegal.  Through his contributions, Robinson fought for causes that helped acquire full citizenship and affected change around the country.
