HT Joins the World in Celebration of Jackie Robinson Day

Jackie Robinson

Huston-Tillotson University joins the world in acknowledgement of baseball great Jackie Robinson.  President Larry L. Earvin and others proclaim April 15, 2013, as Jackie Robinson Day.  Robinson was a Samuel Huston College instructor, basketball coach, and athletic director before joining the Brooklyn Dodgers.  He later served on the Huston-Tillotson College Board of Trustees. The movie “42″ in theaters now depicts the depth of his character while facing racism.
