Harrison Ford

Tavis Smiley interview

18 Apr, 2013

Ford discusses his career and his latest role as Brooklyn Dodgers GM Branch Rickey in the Jackie Robinson biography, 42, in this interview for PBS. On Rickey’s decision to integrate the team:

Well, I think he had a combination of motives. He was a very religious man, devout Methodist, and I think he had a number of motivations besides the ethical and moral feelings that he had, and I’m not so sure it had a lot to do with race, because he grew up in a context where there was race prejudice.
