Description: "Something to Cheer About is the story of the Crispus Attucks Tigers and the coach who spurred them on to become the first all-black high school basketball team to win a U.S. state championship. In 1955, Oscar Robertson and his teammates at the segregated Crispus Attucks High School rose from the segregation of the time to be the first all-black team ever to win a state championship. With their innovative style of playing, this brilliant group of athletes changed basketball forever. The documentary tells this story of the coach, school and team that inspired the nation. Coach Crowe created a team that ignited the talents of Harlem Globetrotter Hallie Bryant, All American Basketball Player Willie Merriweather, and of course NBA MVP Oscar Robertson, among others who went on to break down color barriers in professional sports by shaking-up stereotypes and racist attitudes of the 1950s.
