Carl Erskine, as Jackie Robinson’s teammate and Jimmy Erskine’s dad, was a firsthand witness to ways societal opinions changed for the better through sports. Jackie Robinson was a pioneer in gently proving that people of color belonged in professional sports. Much in the same way, Jimmy Erskine has taken part in a movement (Special Olympics) that continues to change the perception of people with intellectual disabilities.
