‘Woodlawn’ Author To Speak In Molino This Sunday; Free Showing Of Movie

September 10, 2016

This Sunday is “Woodlawn Sunday” at Highland Baptist Church in Molino.

Todd Geralds, the author of the book Woodlawn and the son of Tandy Geralds, the coach in the film Woodlawn, will be the special guest at the church. Woodlawn is a riveting true story of courage, strength, and football at the height of racial tension in Birmingham.  The book has inspired the motion picture Woodlawn, and tells the story of Coach Tandy Gerelds, his running back Tony Nathan, and a high school football game that healed a city.

Geralds will speak during the Highland Mens’ Breakfast at 7 a.m., and during morning workship at 10:45 a.m.

The church will present a special free showing of the movie Woodlawn at 6 p.m. Sunday.

The 2015 film grossed $14.4 million at the box office.
