Part of FAB Flicks
Directed by Spike Lee | 1988

With Laurence Fishburne, Giancarlo Esposito, Tisha Campbell-Martin, Spike Lee

Lee’s audacious follow-up to She’s Gotta Have It follows a self-styled radical (Fishburne) at the historically black Mission College—a stand-in for Lee’s reallife alma mater Morehouse—as he tries to shake up the campus’ political conscience and clashes with the Gamma Phi Gamma fraternity. Bursting with energetic musical numbers (including a memorable beauty parlor showdown over black hair styles), School Daze pulls off a deft mix of comedy and commentary, touching insightfully on colorism, class, and African-American identity.

Films begin at 8:30pm.
