Rachel Robinson screening of 42

Rachel Robinson was at the White House for a screening of the movie about her husband Jackie.  I saw ’42’ and thought it was really good.  I’m glad she is still around to see him honored in this way.  

Several people have commented that it is a ‘feel good movie’.  That doesn’t discount all the mistreatment that Jackie Robinson had to go through.  It just means he rose above all the hatred and performed like the talented athlete that he was.
