Conrack (1974)

In this uplifting drama based on the memoir "The Water is Wide," Pat Conroy (Jon Voight) accepts a teaching position on an isolated island in South Carolina. There he finds a class of black students who are illiterate and want simple personal hygiene. Conroy contradicts the lax institutional standards and exposes his students to a wide range of topics. Still, those in power do not take kindly to his efforts to overturn their racist policies.
