Directed by John Singleton | 1993

With Janet Jackson, Tupac Shakur, Regina King

John Singleton’s follow-up to Boyz n the Hood casts two of the biggest music superstars of the 90s—Janet Jackson (sporting now-iconic box braids) and Tupac (displaying his softer side)—and builds a free-flowing road movie romance around their undeniable chemistry. Peppered with the poetry of Maya Angelou, Poetic Justice is a sensitive, hopeful depiction of black struggle, joy, and creativity.
