Film Presentation: 'The Great Debaters'

Part of Black History Month at CSM
Tue Feb 04, 2014
11:00 am - 1:00 pm

The Great DebatersIn honor of Black History Month, CSM presents a film screening of
The Great Debaters, a film by Denzel Washington. Sponsored by the CSM Ethnic Studies Program

Two-time Academy Award® winner Denzel Washington (American Gangster) directs and stars with Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker (Last King of Scotland) in this important and deeply inspiring page from the not-so-distant past (Richard Roeper, At the Movies with Ebert and Roeper).

Inspired by a true story, Washington shines as a brilliant but politically radical debate team coach who uses the power of words to transform a group of underdog African American college students into an historical powerhouse that took on the Harvard elite.
