A true story of a priest (Andre Braugher) in New Orleans who formed a group of black players and challenged an all-white prep school basketball team in the 1960’s. Eventually events like these signaled the pivotal turn in the games’ history leading to the integration in today’s sport. Directed by Steve James (Hoop Dreams), these basketball players didn’t just make shots, they made history.
Set in 1960s New Orleans, Passing Glory stars Andre Braugher as Father Joseph Verrett, who sets up a match between his all-black high school’s undefeated basketball team and the top squad from an all-white prep school. In his attempt to stage the city’s first integrated basketball game, Father Verrett struggles to make sure his team is treated with respect while facing opposition from both black and white community leaders.
