In this next episode of “Back in the Day,” I stretch 25 years back and look at Morgan Freeman’s first lead role. More important than how good or not-so-good a movie it might have been are the personal connections I still have to it. Click on the picture above and learn a few things about Lean on Me, the film about controversial high school principal Joe Clark who believed he had no choice but to fight fire with a little bit of his own fire.
