If you have not already heard, Hollywood is set to honor Jackie Robinson in a new movie called “42” starring Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford. The movie is a tale of heroism, perseverance, and triumph. It tells the story of a brave man’s stand against prejudice, which not only changed the game of baseball but the entire world. He fought racism, not with violence or words, but sheer talent. And he prevailed.
Cypress Hills Cemetery is proud to be the final resting place of Jackie Robinson, a true hero.
We encourage you to watch the film, relive the story and pay respect to an all around legend.
Don’t forget, April 15th is Jackie Robinson day, the day where all of baseball recognizes and remembers Jackie Robinson’s incredible achievement.
“42” comes to theaters April 12th. See the movie trailer below.
