Did we miss something on diversity?

Loved this movie

I’m not a huge basketball fan. But I do love a good sports movie! It was inspirational. It helped my children learn about racism in history but that still goes on today. It opened their eyes to what many people have to go through. It taught about one person standing up for a cause and changing the lives of so many people. To do what’s right not what’s popular. I wish they would’ve been more accurate to facts that actually happened but still a good movie and good music along the way. Also the scenes when they drink and talk to girls wasn’t that bad it does happen a few times. I didn’t have to fast forward normally I do have to during movies for the kids.
