Woodlawn's Real Tony Nathan Speaks on Race & Giving It All to God

By Justina Miller on Jul 30, 2016 9:00:13 AM

It wasn’t until 1971 that Birmingham’s Woodlawn High School finally desegregated. While many students, teachers and faculty did not welcome the transition, the football team was the first to reconcile their differences. This short interview from CBN’s The 700 Club features Tony Nathan or “Touchdown Tony,” who was only a freshman when Woodlawn desegregated. Nathan was on the football team and was not only instrumental in the team’s success on the field, but also one of the first to practice peace in an environment inundated with racism. By their example, the Woodlawn football team generated a change in their school and eventually in the whole city of Birmingham. These incredible events inspired the movie, “Woodlawn,” starring Caleb Castille, Sean Astin, and Nic Bishop.
