The Great Debaters Trailer

It must be the year, but the number of big actors who are turning into directors grows every day. The latest is Denzel Washington who is debuting his second directorial effort, The Great Debaters, on Christmas Day. Set back in 1935, The Great Debaters is based on the true story of Melvin B. Tolson, a professor at Wiley College Texas who inspired his students to form the school's first debate team. This actually looks really damn good, I'm quite impressed. Oscar contender?

The Great Debaters opens in theaters everywhere on Christmas Day, December 25th.

I am a Wiley grad and am anxious to see this movie. It is an honor to be an alum of this institution. Oh, Wiley Dear, ever we sing thy praise.......(a verse from our alma mater.)

I look forward to seeing this masterpiece. Masterful because it showcases not only the phenomenial Denzel Washington and profoundly unforgetable, Forrest Whittaker, but also the up and coming team of debaters. Awesome cast! Prolific story. Dynamic truth. I will not miss this. I live not far from Wiley! Graduated from a predominately white university. I know the struggle. And I applaud those who dare to tell of the journey. Keep on keeping on Oprah!
