Loosely based on his own experiences, Spike Lee uses music and comedy to present a unique take on the American college system. Surrounded by a culture consumed by football, fraternities and parties, “Dap”, an intense, serious student at a prestigious, historically black campus is immersed in the alternative world of political activism and social justice. Struggling to bring his friends along with him, they find themselves clashing with other members of the local community put off by their perceived privilege. Taking place over one wild weekend, Dap and his friends become caught up in romance and rivalry, but also have their perspectives on identity and self-esteem challenged. This is a typically dynamic, provocative film from Lee, one of the most significant chroniclers of African American culture in film history.
Based on real events, this film charts a day in the life of a Black man named Oscar Grant on NYE 2008 and how he was unlawfully killed by the police.
