Of the Father and of the Son

Jackie Robinson’s son sets out to create a legacy of his own

This short is the latest chapter in a compelling family saga – the tale of 62-year-old David Robinson, the youngest child of civil rights hero Jackie Robinson, and the life he has built as a farmer in Africa.

Robinson has spent the last 30 years assimilating entirely into African culture. He’s raising a family thousands of miles away not only from the Brooklyn streets where his father built a legacy but also the lily-white suburbs of Connecticut where he was raised and the upscale American businesses that serve his product and fuel his mission – using the world’s second-most-valuable natural resource to spur social change and honor his father’s legacy.
