All-black St. Augustine High School battled biased calls and outright racism following its integration of Louisiana’s all-white football league in 1967. Led by head coach Otis Washington, the team revolutionized the game and invigorated New Orleans’ black community during a contentious time in civil rights history. Narrated by Wendell Pierce.
