February is African-American Heritage Month so please join us as we’re showing a variety of films to celebrate at the library.
On February 18, The Jackie Robinson Story will be shown. Jackie Robinson plays himself in this biopic drama about his life in the Negro Leagues and Major League Baseball. A native of Cairo, Georgia, Jackie Robinson became the first African-American to break the color barrier in baseball when Branch Rickey, the president of the Brooklyn Dodgers, asked him to join his team in 1947. A man of indomitable will, superb athletic ability, a U.S. Army officer during WWII and showing great courage throughout his career, Jackie Robinson embodies what it is to be an American hero.
