SAAACAM – SA African American Community Archive & Museum

October 2 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm PDT

SAAACAM presents a free public screening of “42” as part of their Black History series.

Bring the family, visit the food truck court and watch a movie at dusk under the stars on the beautiful SA Riverwalk.

 

Hero is a word we often hear in the world of sports, but heroism is not always about achievements on the field of play. 42 tells the story of two men — the great Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman) and the legendary Brooklyn Dodgers manager Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford) — whose brave stand against prejudice forever changed the world by changing the game of baseball. In 1946, Rickey signed Robinson to the team, breaking Major League Baseball’s infamous color line. Facing racism from every side, Robinson demonstrated tremendous courage by letting his talent on the field do the talking — ultimately winning over fans and his teammates, and paving the way for others to follow.

 

Panel discussion immediately following:

Greg Garrett, Negro League Baseball researcher and enthusiast former researcher at the UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures

William “Lefty” O’Neal, South Texas Negro League Player and historian

Cary Clack, columnist for the San Antonio Express News, and Negro League Baseball enthusiast,
