Synopsis

The Morgan Lacrosse Story
Filmmaker Luke David looks back on the team that changed the sport of lacrosse forever in this documentary detailing the inspirational story of the Morgan State University Bears. The Bears were America's first and only college lacrosse team at a historically black university, and few could have predicted what a profound impact they would ultimately have on the sport. It all began when a young white administrator was offered a position as head lacrosse coach at Morgan State University in Baltimore. Though initially reluctant to accept the position, the coach eventually helped guide his players to success through one of the most racially charged periods in American history. Interviews with the players, their parents, their peers, and their coaches highlight how perseverance, determination, and unyielding optimism helped the Morgan State Bears overcome incredible odds and make sports history. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
