Celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Jackie Robinson Day with a Bright Star pre-recorded show!

Did you know that April 15th is the 75th anniversary of Jackie Robinson Day? This is a traditional event which occurs annually on April 15 in Major League Baseball, commemorates and honors the day Jackie Robinson made his major league debut.
Jackie Robinson’s number “42” has come to symbolize the triumph of the human spirit over incredible odds. Bright Star’s biographical tale follows the life of Jackie Robinson, the first black baseball player to cross the color lines in the Major Leagues. A real-life hero and a tribute to the power of persistence and determination in the face of adversity, see why Jackie Robinson has inspired so many people both in and out of sports!
Jackie Robinson is now available as a pre-recorded show along with many others.
