Directed by John Singleton | 1995

With Omar Epps, Laurence Fishburne, Michael Rapaport

Three college freshmen from various walks of life wrestle with campus racial tensions, identity politics, and personal crises in this explosive ensemble drama. Tackling a host of hot-button issues—from sexual identity to white supremacy—with insight and passionate intensity, Higher Learning displays the keen intelligence and willingness to grapple with big ideas that distinguished Singleton throughout his career.
