The Great Debaters (2007)

Two-time Academy Award winner Denzel Washington stars with Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker in this important and deeply inspiring page from the not-so-distant past. 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.
