Diddy Honored by Jackie Robinson Foundation

A brief history lesson on Jackie Robinson reveals that he was much more than the first African-American major league baseball player.

Last night (March 7) in New York City at the Jackie Robinson Foundation Annual Awards Dinner, three honorees were recognized for their respective contributions to society.

Founder and CEO of the Bad Boy Entertainment Group Sean “P. Diddy” Combs were among two honorees to be given the “Robie” Achievement In Industry award along with Joseph R.
