CRITIC’S PICK: There is a poignant photograph in this new exhibition. It’s of a young Hank Aaron in Alabama waiting for a train to take him to spring training with the Indianapolis Clowns. It was 1952. This was Aaron’s first trip away from home and all he had with him was $1.50 and a couple of sandwiches. There are plenty of other gems as well, including images and artifacts from the collections of Atlanta History Center, the Atlanta Braves, the National Baseball Hall of Fame, Emory University, Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, and from personal collections throughout the country. “More Than Brave” tells Hammerin’ Hank’s story from his youth in Mobile to his record-making baseball career, his lifelong fight against bigotry, and his involvement in business and charitable causes. — Kevin C.
