“The Great Debaters”

Email Email Print

Denzel Washington in 'The Great Debaters'

This is a wonderful movie, and possibly a great one.  Like many great movies, it is about courage.

Each year I teach the cases about the rise and fall of Jim Crow that begin with Plessy and end with Brown, and talk about the long march to fulfilling the promise of the 14th Amendment and the end “separate but equal,” but a fine movie like this one does far more to convey how harrowing was the part played by civil rights pioneers than 20 lectures.  Do you and your family a favor and see this movie this week.  The lines will be long, but it will be well worth the wait.  Congratulations to Denzel Washington for an important movie, as well as a beautifully made one. He and it will richly deserve the many nominations headed their way.
