Gabby Douglas Biopic Coming Soon

The Winter Olympics are nearly here and Black History Month too is coming. Thus the time is ripe for a biopic on the life of Gabby Douglas. She happens to be the first African American to be an all-time winner in gymnastics. This is one woman who has found her way through sports. 

She had a mother who had four kids and separated from her husband. Her mother had to work really hard to support all her children and especially to fuel Gabby’s career. The struggle and drive that powered Gabby Douglas to make the impossible possible is the stuff which inspires legends. And she has taken it with a lot of humility and poise. 

Regina King plays the role of Gabby’s mother in the movie. The pain and pressures she took and tolerated for the sake of her dear daughter are a very moving tale of the strength of a woman. Two other movies are also coming up soon. They are “Flowers in the Attic” and “Lizzie Borden took an Axe”. 

The Gabby Douglas Story portrays how a young female mind can be encouraged by her guardian to reach for the stars. And it also depicts the hard work and dedication that an African American has to apply in her life to achieve what lies out of reach. It is a truly amazing look at the power of belief and how it can conquer the odds that are stacked against a person in a racist society.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
