The untold story of the courageous athletes who shattered the color barrier at the University of Alabama...in the shadow of segregationist Gov. George Wallace's defiant stand at Foster Auditorium...and how these civil rights pioneers tapped into a force more powerful than hate. While laying the foundation for Nick Saban's new-age Bama dynasty, these athletes helped Alabamians begin to see beyond black and white. Featuring exclusive interviews with Wilbur Jackson, the Jackie Robinson of Alabama football;
Dock Rone, Andrew Pernell and Arthur Dunning, who walked on to the all-white Bama team in 1967 but have been lost to history (until now); Wendell Hudson, the first African-American basketball player for the Crimson Tide; and Danny Treadwell, who integrated the state high school basketball tournament at Foster, just 33 months after Wallace's infamous stand. An official selection of the 2013 Sidewalk Film Festival and All Sports Los Angeles Film Festival.
"Simply an unforgettable film...Keith Dunnavant has taken one of the seminal moments in the civil rights movement and peeled off a new layer that is both haunting and gut-wrenching."
--Paul Finebaum, ESPN.
"An incredible piece of filmmakng...The little-known back story of how the love of sports---particularly Alabama football---eventually made people of the region put aside their long-held prejudices and accept the inevitable change...A story of courage, determination and, ultimately, redemption."
---Tony Barnhart, CBS Sports.
"A championship effort by Dunnavant, who allows THREE DAYS AT FOSTER to expose dark times in Tuscaloosa that ultimately give way to a brighter day, not only for a team but a state..."
---Tom Lindley, CNHI News Service.
