Road to Glory
Glory Days (2006)
In 1966, Texas Western coach, Don Haskins (Josh Lucas) led the first all-black starting line-up for a college basketball team to the NCAA national championship.
This is a true story...today's NBA is a direct beneficiary of racial intergration...Texas Western was the NCAA's version of today's
Detriot Pistons, 40 years ago.
"Glory Days" is a Walt Disney film as was, "Remember The Titans" (Another great film)
This is a cool movie...
This is history...
Make sure to take the kids.
Based on the true story of a small-town Indiana team that made the state finals in 1954, this movie chronicles the attempts of a coach (Gene Hackman) with a spotty past, and the town's basketball-loving drunk to lead their high school team to victory.
"Hoosiers" is one of our greatest sports films...but what's notable is the absence of The Black Athlete ANYWHERE on screen.
With that being said?...THIS IS A REALLY GOOD MOVIE!!
Catch it on cable.
