I saw effect more all my parents, you know, because by the time Jackie dies, so young. And so I'm probably twelve or so by the time Jackie passes away. And so his impact. Really was seen through my parents. And I think that was the case particularly for for black folks all over the country, particularly in the south Jackie whether he wrote and Jackie Robinson, breaking the color barrier.
