In the late ‘90s, a group of teens from rival neighborhoods on Chicago’s West Side formed an unlikely bond. They became the first all-Black high school rowing team. Now, their story is at the center of new documentary called “A Most Beautiful Thing.” It’s based on a memoir by the same name, written by rower turned motivational speaker Arshay Cooper. Soledad O’Brien spoke with Arshay, director Mary Mazzio and executive producer Grant Hill.
