Based on a true story, Sport
This inspiring sports drama is set in the 1960s American South, where the integration of African-American players into basketball teams was still highly controversial. It focuses on the real-life story of a college team that broke down these barriers, through having the first all Black starting line-up for the NCAA national champs under coach Don Haskins. The Texas Western team, which had previously not had much of a reputation as a strong contender, showed they could succeed on court and pose a challenge to the University of Kentucky's all-white team in the championship, combating stirred racial resentment in the process.
