Crystal is a retired teacher living alone in a big house that is filled with family heirlooms and history. When the number of belongings gets to be too much, she calls Matt for help. Together they sort through items that shed light on her family’s impressive legacy. Her father was a reporter and activist. One of her uncles was a famous musician and another a preacher who knew Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The big surprise? An autographed picture of Jackie Robinson that brings Crystal to tears.
