LETTERS FROM JACKIE: THE PRIVATE THOUGHTS OF JACKIE ROBINSON explores Jackie's deepest motivations as he solidifies his role in the civil rights movement after his days as a trailblazing baseball player. The film uses unedited and uncensored letters written by Jackie to iconic figures such as Martin Luther King, Jr. and President Eisenhower. Interviews with his daughter, Sharon Robinson; his pen pal, Ron Rabinovitz; historian Joe Dorinson; and an array of MLB players paint a vivid picture of this complex and inspirational man.
