In 1971, racial tensions ran high at TC Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia, as three schools merged to form a newly integrated one. Out of this experience the story of Remember the Titans emerged; and an undefeated football team was born. They won the state championship that year. While there have been about 30 more Virginia state championship games since then, that 1971 season, coached by Herman Boone, will always be special.

After beating out local favorite and successful coach Bill Yoast of the formerly all-white Hammond High to become head coach of the Titans, Boone faced the challenge of a lifetime. Although honored by his appointment, he had to endure racial intolerance and the disapproval of Yoasts supporters. However, after putting their prejudices aside, the two coaches worked together to unify the team - a team whose former rivalry was only exacerbated by the strain between the black and white players. The team came together to form a bond with a common vision - to win football game. For more information please visit http://www.apbspeakers.com
