Lifetime will celebrate Black History Month in February, with the premiere of its all-new original movie, The Gabby Douglas Story, starring Regina KingS. Epatha Merkerson, Imani Hakim (as the older Gabby Douglas), Sydney Mikayla (as the younger Gabby) and Gabby Douglas herself.

The Gabby Douglas Story tells the inspiring true story of the international gymnastics phenomenon who overcame overwhelming odds to become the first African American ever to be named Individual All-Around Champion in artistic gymnastics at the Olympic Games.

It premieres this Saturday, February 1st, at 8pm ET/PT.

To celebrate the premiere of The Gabby Douglas Story, Lifetime launched a contest about a month ago, inviting schools across the country to take the Gabby Douglas Raise the Bar Pledge. Schools were to enter for a chance to win $10,000 by encouraging their students to submit pledges to raise the bar in their own lives. Read all about that here: www.raisethebarpledge.com.

A trailer for the tele-pic has arrived and is embedded below:
