42 – The Jackie Robinson Story

Director: Brian Helgeland
Writer: Brian Helgeland
Stars: Chadwick Boseman, T.R. Knight, Harrison Ford

In a world of segregation, their was white or black. There was no grey. There was only ignorance, hate and being scared of the unknown. Until one day a man made the decision to over come it all, for the love of baseball. Sports save the world over and over. Sports bring everyone together as one. This is life story of Jackie Robinson and his history-making signing with the Brooklyn Dodgers under the guidance of team executive Branch Rickey. This is about playing baseball no matter the color of your skin. Because of this history my son who is half black and white today plays for the LA Dodgers minor league team with the hopes of playing for the MLB.
