Event Details

WHRO Emerging Leaders present the Independent Lens screening of
Wrestle
at Southside Boys & Girls Club!


Wrestle is an intimate, inspiring coming of age portrait of the wrestling team at Huntsville's J.O. Johnson High School, which has been on Alabama's failing schools list for many years.

As they fight their way towards the State Championship, wrestlers Jailen, Jamario, Teague, and Jaquan each face injustices and challenges on and off the mat, together grappling with obstacles that jeopardize their success while their coach wades into the complexities of class and race in the South.

You won't want to miss this event!

6:30 Screening begins

8:00 Audience discussion led by Sylvia Muller, Director of the Hampton Roads and Peninsula office of Big Brothers Big Sisters
