Denzel Washington directs his second feature film in “The Great Debaters"  Like his first film, Antwone Fisher, Denzel also stars in the film though this time rather than breaking down mental barriers as a psychiatrist, he is helping build young men and women as a debate coach for historically black Wiley College. The film is set in Texas during the 1930's, a time when racism was blatant and lynch mobs were a constant fear for blacks.
