Who Is Akeelah?

Originally Published: May 15, 2005

I have posted a preview page for the new Laurence Fishburne movie, Akeelah and the Bee.

The film centers on a precocious eleven-year-old girl named Akeelah Anderson (Keke Palmer), from south Los Angeles, who is discovered to have a talent for words. In spite of the objections of her mother Wanda (Angela Bassett), Keke enters a spelling contest. Her gift takes her to compete in the National Spelling Bee, the most famous competition of its kind in the world.

The film opens later this year. Find out more about this heart-warming film in the Film Library RIGHT HERE »
