"Drama basado en la historia real de Melvin B. Tolson, un profesor culto de la Universidad de "Wiley College Texas". En 1935, él inspiró a los estudiantes de su grupo de debate. Siendo un excelente orador, Tolson estimuló a sus estudiantes a sostener argumentos lógicos, contraponerlos y defenderlos en debates. De esa manera, sus pupilos comenzaron a destacar y a competir con otras universidades, culminando con una invitación sin precedentes por parte de la prestigiosa Universidad de Harvard, rompiendo las barreras sociales existentes y logrando derrotarla en el Campeonato Nacional. El Gran Debate nos ofrece una cruda y reveladora mirada a una época de transición en la complicada sociedad estadounidense y rinde homenaje a un individuo que contribuyó a la superación de muchos afroamericanos."--Envase
