Glory Road is the basketball equivalent of Friday Night Lights, Miracle and The Rookie. This is a good thing. Inspiring sport stories make good film, and this is no exception. This story throws in the ugly issue of racism. A tragic characteristic of human nature, racism in action is uncomfortable to watch, but important to acknowledge and overcome. This film addresses it well. Stay through the credits to see the actual people depicted, comment on the game and times.
