These aren’t my words, but the film and the post are worth sharing. Jon Leonoudakis is sharing this along with his friend, Ron Rapaport, who interviewed Jackie Robinson toward the end of his life. The above short video is worth watching. Below is the post from Facebook, announcing that viewing will be free for the rest of the month of February, 2021.
“HONORING BLACK HISTORY MONTH: MY SHORT FILM, “JACKIE ROBINSON: A LION IN WINTER.”
For the rest of the month, I’m presenting free access to my 2017 film about Jackie Robinson near the end of his life in a story told by my good friend, writer/journalist Ron Rapoport, who initially wrote this story for the Los Angeles Times in 1972.
The film runs 9 minutes and shares a poignant and insightful story about an American pioneer and warrior for social justice.”
