In "Jackie Robinson: A Game Apart," actor Mike Wiley provides a glimpse of Jackie Robinsonís life during a bygone era of separate and unequal locker rooms, of whites only hotels, and of restaurants where only a back door was opened for colored athletes. A star player who was showered with adulation on the field, Robinson became a secondclass citizen when he walked off the diamond.
