The movie also shows the love of his life his wife which he later marries and has children. He has another well-wisher Wendell Smith a sportswriter.

There is only one condition for him that is he has to control his temper to play around these other white people.

The Condition of Racism is extreme in that era where black people are not allowed to do anything that affects the whites or they are not treated as human beings.

The black people not allowed to go to the same hotel from the same door or there are separate bathrooms for the black and separate rooms for the white people. Eventually, the white is rich and wealthy, and the black are poor and innocent.

In such situations, Jackie has to play baseball with a team that is completely not supportive and at the start, the white police also tried to stop him from playing.

When they started to Practice for the training many of the team members has signed the petition refusing to play with Jackie but the team manager Leo Durocher does not give up the hope on the team and insisted that Jackie will play in the game.

Sooner the manager Leo is suspended by the commissioner of baseball Happy chandler. And Brooklyn Dodgers have to continue the season without the manager later the new manager Burt Shotton has appointed as a new manager.

Jackie has a good friend in the team a white guy Rickey which help to encourage the game against the Philadelphia Phillies. In that game, Jackie scores the winning run. The manager of the opponent team Ben Champman is taunting him for being black and telling him to go where he belongs and pressure from the crowd just being the black guy.

For this behavior of the Ben he has to pose for the Jackie in the newspaper and as apology.

Robin’s teammate has also encouraged him to play in the ground and they stand with him and stand before the crowd as a sign of solidarity.

Robinson takes his team to the World Series and eventually loses to New York Yankees.

Summary of Chadwick Boseman’s 42 Movie:

The movie is truly amazing starring Chandwick Boseman he was a such a gem and we have to lose him in his early life.

The movie shows the struggle made by a player to represent his team and to play in the MBL. Being the first black to became to play MBL he encourages other players to do so. He was a hero and role model for every citizen.

A person must be self-encouraging to be in such extreme situation and still play for his and lead them to win.

He is one of the reasons to challenge racism and equalize the differentiation between black and white people.
