This stirring true story stars Academy Award winner Denzel Washington as Herman Boone, the newly appointed football coach at T. C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia. In 1971, Boone made history as the leader of the first racially integrated high school football team to win a state championship, becoming a symbol of unity and progress for the community along the way. Told from the team’s perspective, Remember the Titans highlights the resiliency and power of the human spirit in the face of adversity.
