Award winner, Accidental Hero plunges the viewer into a multi-racial high school classroom where the focus of the students is winning...bringing home a state championship in a little known academic sport called "forensics." The art of public speaking is changing their lives, and Tommie Lindsey, their powerful African-American coach, is proving it. By allowing students to draw on their cultural backgrounds, sometimes pent up pain or anger, Lindsey channels emotions positively into spellbinding performances.
Lindsey creates champions and inspires dreams to happen. The audience experiences the process, from classroom to state championship.
Oprah Winfrey featured Accidental Hero on her television show awarding Tommie Lindsey and his program the $100,000 Use Your Life Award
