ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The next big movie made by several people involved with Sherwood Pictures film Courageous opens nationwide on Friday.

The movie, called Woodlawn, is about the forced desegregation of Woodlawn High School in Birmingham, Alabama in 1973.

It tells the true story of how the football team overcame racial violence and the story of one special player in the middle of it all.

"It tells the story of Tony Nathan and a standout running back at his own school. And they come together. How acceptance began to happen and the way that God fused the stories together," said Senior Associate Pastor of Sherwood Baptist Church Steven Dervan.

Sherwood Baptist Church and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes will provide free tickets to middle and high school students to see the movie at Albany's Wynnsong Cinemas Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. and Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
