I enjoyed this movie based on real events. Worth a watch; Morgan Freeman was terrific. I would have liked to have seen some historical info. before the end credits, elaborating on how the school and the principal continued to fare in subsequent years. A commentary track or biography on Joe Louis Clark would also have been welcomed. Mr. Clark, a former military man, is now retired from teaching and had a further career as a motivational speaker.
