Summer Film Series – 42

Join us for a captivating night under the stars at the International African American Museum’s Summer Film Series, featuring an outdoor screening of “42”, the remarkable story of Jackie Robinson, the first African American to play in Major League Baseball. This event, set in the African Ancestors Memorial Garden on Thursday, May 23, celebrates the legacy of Robinson, portrayed by South Carolina’s own Chadwick Boseman, and his journey of bravery and resilience.

“42” is more than a film; it’s a tribute to the heroes who faced and fought against racial prejudice, changing the game of baseball and the world. Witness the powerful narrative of Jackie Robinson and Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford), who together challenged the norms and forever altered history.

This screening is a part of our series highlighting significant African and African American cultural and historical themes. It’s an evening to honor, reflect, and be inspired by the strength and spirit of those who break barriers. Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with history and community in a serene outdoor setting. Join us in celebrating an icon who transcended the sport and became a symbol of enduring change.
