An American Hero

Jackie Robinson

As part of The Odin Project, there is a project to build a landing page with multiple different elements from a static image layout. Once I had completed the project to specifications I decided to make it a fan page and this is the result. Really fun to do and learned quite a lot as I hadn't really built a site directly from an image specification before.

Some key professional moments:

Robinson doing the long jump for UCLA
Robinson during his stint in the Negro leagues with the Kansas City Monarchs
Robinson (holding bats) playing in Montreal
Robinson as an ABC sports announcer, 1965

"I'm not concerned with your liking or disliking me... all I ask is that you respect me as a human being."
