Early Beginnings

—Jackie Robinson Ballpark & Museum —

Jack Roosevelt Robinson was born on January 3i, 1919, in Cairo, Georgia, the grandson of a slave and the son of a sharecropper. In 1920, jack's father, Jerry, abandoned his wife, Mallie, and their five children, Edgar, Frank, Mack, Willa Mae, and Jack. Mallie Robinson's uncle invited them to move to Pasadena, California, and she packed up their belongings and boarded her "freedom train." On a domestic's salary she was able to purchase a four bedroom cottage at 121 Pepper Street. Mallie was a pioneer who escaped from bigotry and now refused to accept abuse. She instilled a positive identity, self-esteem, and an intense feeling of entitlement in her children.
