Something to Cheer About is a cinematic celebration and inspirational documentary film about the Crispus Attucks Tigers.

The film directed by Betsy Blankenbaker features interviews with Robertson and Tigers teammates, Hallie Bryant (of the Harlem Globetrotters) and All American Willie Meriweather, who would go on to break down racial barriers in collegiate and professional sport.
