Jackie Robinson’s bust is larger than life outside of Pasadena City Hall. Next to his memorial is one for his brother Mack Robinson, who was an Olympic athlete himself.

It is Dr. King Day. And on this day, I am saluting Hamtramck Stadium, one of the last remaining former Negro League parks and a monument for what is good and what is wrong with our country.
