How We Determine Our Grades

Sports provide the background for other movies that deal with difficult racial issues. In Coach Carter, a high school basketball coach takes an unpopular stance when he locks the inner city players out of the gym until they bring up their grade point averages. Collegiate coach Dan Haskins ruffles more than feathers when he signs up some Black athletes to play for the Texas Western Miners in Glory Road. A debate team made up of African-American students prepares to compete against the prestigious Harvard University in The Great Debaters.
