It is 1973 and Jim Ellis (Howard), a college-educated African-American, cannot find a job. Driven by his love of competitive swimming, Ellis transforms the Philadelphia Department of Recreation's abandoned recreational pool hall. When city officials mark the location for demolition, Ellis fights back by starting the city's first African-American swim team by recruiting troubled teens from the inner-city streets. As racism, violence and an unsympathetic city official threaten to tear the team apart, Ellis must convince his team that victory, both in and out of the pool, is within their reach. With a soundtrack that features classic artists like Aretha Franklin, The Isley Brothers, The O'Jays, John Legend and James Brown, Pride is a triumphant story about team spirit and courage in the face of overwhelming odds to be shared with the whole family.
