Product Overview

The Marva Collins Story is the real-life account of a dedicated African-American teacher in Chicago who faced tough odds trying to help children succeed in their inner-city school. Collins (played by Cicely Tyson) also faced adversarial colleagues who disapproved of her teaching methods. With the help of her supportive husband (played by Morgan Freeman) and her family, Collins used her own retirement money to establish the Westside Preparatory School in 1975 with 6 students. By the time of this film's original telecast in 1981, Collins was teaching over 200 ghetto children. Originally telecast as a Hallmark Hall of Fame special.
