CELEBRATING THE LIFE & LEGACY OF CHADWICK BOSEMAN

The Strand recognizes the legacy of Chadwick Boseman, whose tragic battle with colon cancer took his life earlier this month. Best known as T'Challa, ruler of the fictional kingdom of Wakanda in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Black Panther blockbuster, Boseman also portrayed pioneering Americans, James Brown in Get on Up (2014), and Thurgood Marshall in Marshall (2017).

Chadwick Boseman passed away on August 28, 2020, the same day Major League Baseball celebrated Jackie Robinson Day.

In honor of Boseman's legacy, The Strand is proud to bring one of his signature biopics back to the Big Screen with '42'.

In the movie, the punishment for not agreeing to play on the same team with Jackie Robinson was being "traded to Pittsburgh". Branch Rickey left the Dodgers in 1950, and become general manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1953. Bobby Bragan, who said he wanted to be traded but then asked not to be, ended up managing the Pirates in 1956.

The last scene of the movie takes place at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh. As Jackie Robinson rounds the bases for his home run, one shot includes the Cathedral of Learning, a famous building at the University of Pittsburgh. In real life, Forbes Field was right next to the university. Forbes Field was torn down after the Pirates moved to Three Rivers Stadium in 1970, and the university kept home plate in its exact location. Forbes Field's home plate is encased in the ground at the same location as in the movie, in William Posvar Hall at the University of Pittsburgh.
