Woodlawn – A Feature Motion Picture – NOW A BIBLE STUDY
In 1973, a spiritual awakening captures the hearts of the Woodlawn High School Football team. Lead by their coach, Tandy Geralds, and fueled by the team’s dedication to love and unity in a school filled with racism and hate, the team makes an astounding run at the playoffs, leading to the largest high school football game ever played in the torn city of Birmingham, Alabama, and the rise of its first African American superstar – Tony Nathan.
Based on a true story that follows the Woodlawn football team on their journey to the state championship against Banks High School. This journey takes place during the early 1970’s, and depicts the turmoil of racism in Birmingham. It also chronicles the Jesus Movement and the impact it has on teams and students as many of them come to know Christ.
