In 1974, competitive swimming was not even a dream to the neighborhood teenagers who gathered to shoot hoops outside the Marcus Foster Recreation Center. Jim Ellis (Terrence Howard), who is driven by a love of competitive swimming, fixes up an abandoned pool building with the help of a janitor named Elston (Bernie Mac). But when city officials mark the place for demolition, he fights back by founding an all-black swim team. Facing racism, violence and a hostile city official, Jim struggles to prepare his novice swimmers for the state championships.
We will have some discussion after the film, printed questions to use as a guide will be available.
