Baseball legend and Stamford resident Jackie Robinson was an icon in the fight for equality for African Americans. So it was only fitting that Robinson’s daughter return to the city he called home to talk about his legacy during Black History Month. Author Sharon Robinson shared her father’s story Thursday at UConn Stamford’s 10th Annual Black History Month celebration.

Robinson says carrying out a family legacy was important to her father. At the end of her speech, she encouraged those in the audience to make a difference and be a positive influence on today’s youth.
