An inspiring retelling of how Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in baseball when he became a member of the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. The film unflinchingly shows the prejudice and Jim Crow laws that Robinson successfully overcame with his outstanding athletic ability and strength of character.  Robinson starred as himself in the 1950 movie, The Jackie Robinson story, but his story bears recounting for a new audience.
