The story of Jackie Robinson is the story of the human will. It’s a story of perseverance. More than anything, it’s a story of progress.
The tale of how Robinson broke into Major League Baseball in 1947 as the first black player since the 19th century and how he subsequently changed minds and hearts is retold in the film 42: The True Story of an American Legend. The film stars Harrison Ford as Brooklyn Dodgers visionary Branch Rickey and Chadwick Boseman as Robinson.
