Maggie Bitume: Still a long way to go

As a great fan of baseball and sports in general, I was very disappointed to see there was no mention at all about the 60th anniversary of Jackie Robinson Day on Sunday, April 15, 2007.

That day was about much more than just two teams playing ball, and that one of the players happened to be African American. It made us look at the separation of races and the predjudiced views we had 60 years ago and that some still have today.

We’ve come a long way, there is still more work to be done.
