Baseball great Jackie Robinson paid a visit Wednesday to Tolenas Elementary School.
Wearing a backwards navy blue ball cap and a blue and white baseball shirt, he clutched a baseball and baseball glove as he told Tolenas students five important facts about himself.
“It’s pretty fun,” he said, as he stood in the library describing his visit.
Fifty important people, including Coretta Scott King, Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, President Barack Obama and even the “Thriller” king himself, Michael Jackson, came to teach the children at Tolenas about famous black figures throughout history, including current times, in a celebration of Black History Month.
