New Audiobook!

Chris Lamb’s Blackout: The Untold Story of Jackie Robinson’s First Spring Training (Bison Books, 2006) is now available as an audiobook on Audible.

Steeping his story in its complex cultural context, Lamb describes Robinson’s determination and anxiety, the reaction of the black and white communities to his appearance, and the unique and influential role of the press—mainstream reporting, the alternative black weeklies, and the Communist Daily Worker—in the integration of baseball. Told here in detail for the first time, this story brilliantly encapsulates the larger history of a man, a sport, and a nation on the verge of great and enduring change.
