Ending
1935, at a small, all black Texas college. Professor Tolson coaches the Wiley College Debate team. Through tryouts, Tolson chooses four of the best debaters from the college, which includes a woman, a 15 year old boy, and the college playboy. The debate team goes on to beat all the traditional black colleges they debate, year in and year out, and after every debate, Tolson and his wife send newspaper clippings and letters to all the more prominent white schools, asking to be allowed to debate them; the only school that accepts is Harvard. As the students continue to debate, one of their teammates backs out because he says it's getting to dangerous. Professor Tolson has a run in with the law for trying to organize a union for the Southern Tenant Farmers and can't go with the team to the Harvard debate. With mixed feelings, lots of personal drama among the remaining members, and a last minute change in debate topic, the team manages to win the trophy as their friend's and family back in Texas listen with great pride, and Tolson lurks in the back of the auditorium.
