Checking out 42





Directed by Brian Helgeland, staring Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford.

42 is the story of Jackie Robinson becoming the first Afro-American player in the Major Baseball League.  It is not his life story, just from the time he was drafted into the "White Only" baseball club and the hateful bullshit he had to put up with from racists who could not comprehend America's Game was for all Americans.


I thought it was a great flick.
