Light It Up

Light It Up LIGHT IT UP is a heartfelt story about six misunderstood inner-city students trying to cope where there's little hope.

In his dazzling leading-role debut, Usher Raymond (Billboard's ''Star Of The Year'') plays Lester, the troubled teen who has finally had enough and decides to take matters into his own hands.

With the help of his friends, Lester succeeds in closing down the school by holding a police officer (Forest Whitaker) hostage. Negotiator Audrey McDonald (Vanessa L. Williams) struggles to maintain peace while tensions simmer inside.

As the crisis build,''The Lincoln Six'' discover talents they did't know they had as their fight to expose dismal classroom conditions gains national attention.

Starring ''a cast of gifted newcomers'' (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times), this powerful and uplifting film lit up audiences around the world.
