The Deal

Akeelah and the Bee

Akeelah is a stubborn 11-year-old in the South Side of Chicago, an environment that threatens to squash her every aspiration. Her mother largely ignores her, her brother runs with gangs, and her father is dead, leaving the young girl to find plenty of trouble. After a threat from her school’s principal pushes her into a spelling bee, Akeelah discovers within herself a talent—and a passion. English teacher Dr. Joshua Larabee decides to coach her all the way to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C.—but changes his mind almost immediately when he actually has to put up with her. But Akeelah isn’t one to give up. Backed by her mother, brother, and neighbors, Akeelah fights her way to the national spotlight, along the way learning a little something about c-o-m-m-u-n-i-t-y.

This inspirational tale is based on the movie starring Laurence Fishburne and Angela Bassett. When it was released in 2006, the film earned an NAACP Image Award for the way it portrayed African Americans in a way that defied stereotypes.
