Join artist Justice Singleton for this screening, followed by an intimate conversation about his father’s life and career. In John Singleton’s vignette of college life, a constellation of sun-kissed stars gather at the fictitious Columbus University. Galvanized by Malik (Omar Epps), the eager young adults are fettered when a white classmate finds community among neo-Nazis. The campus becomes a crucible of heightened tensions, deepening the fault lines of race, class, and gender. Amidst this potent convergence of rebellious youth cultures, the journey toward self-realization becomes a pulsating narrative of transformation and strife. It echoes the complexities of a decade where cultural renaissance thrived alongside the challenges of forging one's identity in a rapidly evolving world.
