Special Martin Luther King Day Showing!

In 1971, high school football was everything to the people of Alexandria, Virginia–and enforced segregation in the U.S. was not in the distant past. When the local school board was forced to integrate an all black school with an all white school, the very foundation of football's great tradition was put to the test. From this history, director Boaz Yakim–aided in no small part by a characteristically dynamic performance by Denzel Washington as T.C. Williams High School’s newly anointed head coach Herman Boone–has made “a huge surprise: a startlingly resonant yet unabashedly entertaining slice of American history, a popcorn movie with complex observations about, of all things, racism.”–
