The Dark Knight Rises: In "42" Jackie Robinson Saves the American Dream
Beck, Bernard
Multicultural Perspectives, v16 n2 p86-90 2014
The movie "42" shows memorable events that have faded from our view in recent years. The events are important to the evolution of a multicultural society in America because of the importance of baseball to the common national culture that all the American people have created. Jackie Robinson's significance as a cultural hero is shown by the respect with which we do not explain him away.
