Inspired by a true story,  THE GREAT DEBATERS chronicles the journey of Professor Melvin Tolson (Denzel  Washington), a brilliant but volatile debate team coach who uses the  power of words to shape a group of underdog students from a small African American college in the deep south into a historically elite  debate team. A controversial figure, Professor Tolson challenged the  social mores of the time and was under constant fire for his unconventional and ferocious teaching methods as well as his radical political views. In their pursuit for excellence, Tolson's debate team receives a groundbreaking invitation to debate Harvard University's championship team. The film is directed by Denzel Washington and stars Washington, Forest Whitaker, Jurnee Smollett, Nate Parker, Denzel Whitaker, and Kimberly Elise.
