Time Out says

In honor of Jackie Robinson’s 100th birthday, MCNY presents 30 black-and white photographs taken for Look Magazine of Robinson with his family and Dodgers teammates. Shot sometime between 1949 and 1953, the photos paint a somewhat idealized version of Robinson at a point when he was routinely subjected to racist taunts, death threats and disdain from fellow players. Nevertheless, these images—some never seen before—offer a unique look at the baseball and civil rights legend who de-segregated major league baseball in 1947. The images are joined here by additional rarities from MCNY’s collection, including little-seen footage of Robinson, and other memorabilia.
