Based on a true story, THE GREAT DEBATERS stars Denzel Washington, Forest Whitaker and Nate Parker. Set in the 1930s, this film relates the struggles of an all black college debate team to gain equality against their white counterparts at a time when Jim Crow laws were in effect and African-Americans feared for their lives everyday. Led by Coach Melvin B. Tolson (Denzel Washington), these underdogs rise above insurmountable odds to achieve victory. (2007, 2 hours 6 minutes)

Each film will be preceded by an engaging introduction and followed with a question and answer session moderated by Mr. Nix.
