WASHINGTON (AP) - Michelle Obama said Tuesday that a new movie chronicling Jackie Robinson's rise through Major League Baseball, including the racial discrimination he endured while breaking the sport's color barrier in the 1940s, left her and the president "visibly, physically moved" after they saw it over the weekend.
The film, "42," also left the couple wondering; "how on Earth, did (the Robinsons) live through that? How did they do it? How did they endure the taunts and the bigotry for all of that time?" she said.
