Abstract:

In so many ways, Sharon Robinson's childhood in the 1950s was typical for the Connecticut suburb where she grew up -- she lived in a beautiful home, went on shopping trips to New York to buy expensive party dresses, joined exclusive social clubs, even had a pony. However, in at least one important respect, her life was utterly extraordinary: her father was the great Jackie Robinson, the man who broke the color barrier in baseball. Stealing Home is her story of growing up in the shadow of a hero, and it offers a remarkable portrait of an African-American family who embodied the American Dream of the 1950s.
