Akeelah and the Bee

Akeelah and the Bee

By Cheryl L. West based on the screenplay by Doug Atchison

February 7 – 23

Akeelah has a crazy passion for words: the more abstruse and labyrinthine, the better. But this gift is almost overwhelmed by the challenge of her daily life in a tough, Chicago neighborhood. Akeelah’s aptitude earns her a spot in the National Spelling Bee, which inspires the people in her neighborhood with her courage and tenacity.
