Known as the Harlem “Rens”, they were an all-Black basketball team that fought through extreme racism and hatred to win the first non-segregated basketball championship in 1939. The film was released in mid-February, and teaches about black history and the Harlem Renaissance.

Huffington Post reports:

The documentary depicts the challenges of a team that endured pervasive racism over the course of three decades. The film shares such vivid details as basketball fans burning Rens players with cigars right on the court.

Poet Dr. Maya Angelou and Phoenix Suns player Grant Hill are among the many interviewed in the documentary who share their thoughts on the importance of black history.
