After seeing Jackie Robinson and the Brooklyn Dodgers play in March of 1948, thirty-year-old Jesse Norwood saw the enthusiasm of the black community as more than just excitement for the sport - he saw an opportunity to help the lost and hopeless African-American youth living in segregated 1950s Mobile, Alabama.
