Dangerous Minds

Dangerous Minds is a 1995 American drama hood film based on the autobiography My Posse Don't Do Homework by former U.S. Marine LouAnne Johnson, who took up a teaching position at Carlmont High School in Belmont, California, in 1989, where most of her students were African-American and Hispanic teenagers from East Palo Alto, a then-unincorporated town at the opposite end of the school district. Starring Michelle Pfeiffer as LouAnne Johnson, the film was released to mixed reception, but became a surprise box office success in the summer of 1995, leading to the creation of a short-lived television series.
