I highly recommend this documentary I saw over the weekend on Showtime Family produced by Jamie Foxx.
It is about an all black high school band in the 70's that won national competitions, produced records and toured Europe and Japan. The music and musicianship is amazing. The story is incredibly heartwarming. It is a lot like Mr. Holland's Opus but it is better and more in every way because it is real and they accomplished so much more and just 5 or so years removed from major events in the civil rights movement.
