Please take your kids to see the movie "42," the story of Jackie Robinson, the first black player to play major league baseball, in 1947. If you don't have kids, it is worth seeing anyway.
Plan on discussing with them all the important issues shown in the movie, including sports, competition, compassion, love, history of sport, American culture and American history.
This is an entertaining movie, but it also is an important movie.
