"IN THE FACE OF INJUSTICE, HE IS ATTILA. BUT SHOW HIM HELPLESSNESS, AND HE'S FLORENCE NIGHTINGGALE" - Buffalo News
Synopsis
Genre: Documentary

Born on Halloween, 1935, Dale Brown's fight for justice began the day his father walked out - two days before he was born.   With a cast that includes Matthew McConaughey, John Wooden, Shaquille O'Neal, Tim Brando, Dick Vitale, Dick Gregory and Don Yaeger, Man in the Glass:  The Dale Brown Story is the "fast-paced"* "must-own"** documentary film about how an overachiever from tiny Minot, North Dakota relentlessly fought, scratched and clawed his way to the top.  Hired by Louisiana State University in 1972 as head men's basketball coach, Dale's on-the-court success would quickly become overshadowed by his efforts off of the court.  His de-segregation of the basketball program would ultimately lead to the complete integration of the school; his battles with the NCAA, which began in 1981 continue today and his weekly letters to a self-conscious struggling teenager helped to create the superstar the world has come to know simply as "Shaq".  Man in the Glass:  The Dale Brown Story is the inspiring story of a truly unique man on a life-long quest to answer the question:  How much can one man really do?
