Editorial Reviews

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

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By John Slade on March 10, 2009
Format: DVD
The title is a bit misleading. This is a documentary about a very inspirational inner-city high school teacher and his successful public speaking program. He teaches high school forensics where students train and compete in oratory, debate, and various dramatic interpretation events. More testimonial than "how to," the film nevertheless offers drama/speech teachers and their students a good sense of what the events are like and the rewards of developing a similar program in their own schools. (Check out the National Forensics League (NFL) online for more information and helpful videos.)
