The University of Findlay will host “A Night with Coach Herman Boone” at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 5, in Winebrenner Theological Seminary.
Boone, who was portrayed by actor Denzel Washington in “Remember the Titans,” will talk about overcoming obstacles, and he will share his life experiences.
The movie “Remember the Titans” will be shown on campus at 8 p.m. the preceding evening, Feb. 4, in the Alumni Memorial Union, Multipurpose Room.
Community members are welcome at both events, $1 at the door. UF students with a valid I.D. will be admitted at no cost.
Boone is a former high school football coach, most famous for coaching at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Va. The movie follows the story of Boone, a newly appointed African-American coach, and his high school team during its first season as a racially integrated group.
The movie screening and Boone presentation will kick off UF’s celebration of Black History Month. The events are sponsored by the Office of Intercultural Services, Department of Athletics and Division of Student Affairs.
