Greetings colleagues, on April 12 the movie "42" will be shown at theaters across the country. The film tells the story of two men and one strong woman-the great Jackie Robinson [played by CHAD BOSEMAN] and legendary Brooklyn Dodgers GM Branch Rickey [played by Oscar winner HARRISON FORD] -whose brave stand against prejudice forever changed the world by changing the game of baseball and Rachel Robinson [played by Nicole Beharie].

This film of hope and encouragement tells a powerful story of these men and their willingness to overcome the horrible barrier of racism and segregation in Major League Baseball. Their display of courage and discipline in the face of adversity forever altered history.

The members of DELTA SIGMA THETA SORORITY, INC feel that 42 will not only resonate with you all that are familiar with Jackie Robinson's legacy, but provides a great opportunity to share the principles of DISCIPLINE, INTEGRITY, HONOR and RESILIENCE depicted in this film with your family, friends, church members and community.

DELTA SIGMA THETA SORORITY, INC is encouraging all chapters to use this movie as our Red Carpet Affair and the BLOOMINGTON ALUMNAE CHAPTER members will be at the Terre Haute Showplace Theater on FRIDAY APRIL 12th to view the early evening show (6 or 7). We would like our colleagues and friends in the community to join us. I will send a reminder email message when there are more details regarding the theater location and time of the movie.

In the meantime, please pencil this event down on your calendars and tell your friends to join us at the movies!
