A drama based on the true story of Melvin B. Tolson, a professor at Wiley College Texas. In 1935, he inspired students to form the school's first debate team, which went on to challenge Harvard in the national championship. Movie with Denzel Washington & Forest Whittaker. The plot seemed kinda shitty (a debate? snore), but the cast looked awesome so I watched it. Amazing movie Cast was great, characters were awesome. And the debates were pretty powerful. Alot of racial influence (it basically drives the movie). Look for this to win some major awards.
