42-poster

This movie was partially filmed in my hometown of Chattanooga. It’s about the story of Jackie Robinson who was the first black baseball player to make a Major League roster with the Brooklyn Dodgers (before the relocated to Los Angeles). There was great bravery and progressive vision in making this happen for African Americans at the time. It’s about providing opportunity for everyone no matter race. During this time in history it was OK in many places to be racist and to have animosity toward people of color We need to remember that this is what makes America great.
