The true and awe-inspiring story of Dr. Benjamin S. Carson (portrayed by Academy Award winner Cuba Gooding Jr.), who overcame a troubled childhood, a violent temper, and all the obstacles an African-American medical practitioner would have to surpass in order to become the Head of Pediatric Neurosurgery at John Hopkins Children’s Center.
