Black History Film Series – 42

October 2 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Fall films 2

Bring your family and friends to Black History Movies under the stars. Movies begin at dusk on the banks of the San Antonio River at the beautiful Arneson River Theater. Stay after each film for discussion and Q & A. Unique food truck offerings will be available at each showing.

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.
