Synopsis

Marshall, Texas, described by James Farmer, Jr. as "the last town to surrender after the Civil War," is home to Wiley College, where, in 1935-36, inspired by the Harlem Renaissance and his underground work as a union organizer , Professor Melvin Tolson coaches the debate team for a nearly undefeated season that sees the first debate between American students from black and white colleges and ends with an invitation to take on national champions Harvard University. The team of four, including a student and a very young James Farmer, are tested in a crucible heated by Jim Crow, sexism, lynching, arrest and near riots, a story of love, jealousy and a national radio audience. .
