At the White House Tuesday night, President Obama will host a movie premiere about a black man who broke the so-called “color barrier.”

The president will host a private screening for the cast and crew members of “42,” a film about baseball legend Jackie Robinson.

It stars Chadwick Boseman as Mr. Robinson, and Harrison Ford as Brooklyn Dodgers executive Branch Rickey.

The film is due to be released to the general public on April 12.
