Extras Reflect on the Historical Significance of "42" | Arts & Culture
Atlanta residents, Anee Huff and Marvin Baldwin, Jr., came to Macon to work as extras on the film "42," which tells the story of Jackie Robinson breaking baseball's color barrier in 1947.
For these young people, it was more than a chance to be featured in a Hollywood movie. The experience was meaningful from a historical perspective too.
They said the scenes gave them cause to reflect about the struggles their grandparents endured and how far America has come since the stands at baseball games were segregated.
