Storyline

The remarkable story of a small-town Virginia black high school coach is told in the one-hour documentary, "The Spirit of Langston Basketball; The Howard 'Hank' Allen Story." Born in rural Virginia, Allen grew up in the North before returning to his home state in the segregated South in 1952 to earn legendary status as a teacher, coach and positive role. The story is told through interviews with the 92-year old Allen and the colleagues and students he inspired. His travails through the public schools of Englewood, New Jersey, at Hampton Institute and NYU - and a stint in a racist World War II military - form the backdrop of this inspiring story of African-American education, dedication, sacrifice and accomplishment. A must-see for coaches of any sport and their pupils. Written by Carl Lut Williams
