    Akeelah and the Bee

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents: Akeelah and the Bee. Akeelah Anderson, a bright young girl with a gift for words living in South Los Angeles, feels a little out of place. She has an undeniable awareness of language, but doesn’t want to be called a brainiac. Still, against the wishes of her mother (Angela Bassett), Akeelah enters the spelling bee, coached by Dr. Larabee (Laurence Fishburne), and earns a spot in the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Akeelah and the Bee is a hopeful tale of the power of knowledge, the courage it takes to push yourself far, and the community that is behind each success story.
