Read Thomas Zeiler’s book Jackie Robinson and Race in America, taking note of passages that you may reference in your paper then develop an essay based on a specific thesis statement of your choice. You may wish to consult the questions for discussion on pages 148 and 149 of the Zeiler book.

Questions 3, 5, and 10 might lend themselves especially well to this assignment because of the way they are formatted. You may also wish to combine aspects of multiple questions, or to develop your own approach altogether.
