This film gives a glimpse of the transition from the segregated school system to the integrated school systems of Manatee County, Florida through the eyes of two legends from historically All-Black Lincoln Memorial High School, Coach Eddie Shannon and former Oakland Raider, Henry Lawrence. In 1969 the two of them played a role to help integrate All-White manatee High School as Lincoln memorial High School was closed down. The confusion, sadness, and anxiety of the transition is illustrated through their stories.
