W.O.W. Event - 'The Great Debaters' Movie Night - free!

Free to all! Movie night "The Great Debaters" with nacho bar and movie treats beginning at 7:00 p.m. in Bede Ballroom.

Inspired by a true story, "The Great Debaters" chronicles the journey of Professor Melvin Tolson, a brilliant but volatile debate team coach, who uses the power of words to shape a group of underdog students from a small African American college in the deep south into a historically elite debate team. A controversial figure, Professor Tolson challenged the social mores of the time and was under constant fire for his unconventional and ferocious teaching methods as well as his radical political views.

This event is sponsored by Diversity & Multicultural Programs and the Black Student Association, and it is part of the Black History Month Series.
