The Blackwing 42 is a tribute to Jackie Robinson and those who pursue their passions regardless of obstacles in their way. He signed a contract with the Kansas City Monarchs baseball club to pursue his passion for athletics. A few years later, Robinson was called to the Major Leagues by the Brooklyn Dodgers, breaking the color barrier and providing much needed momentum to the desegregation movement that extended well beyond baseball.
