    ITEM#: 2509858

    The third installment in John Singleton's trilogy about South Central Los Angeles, HIGHER LEARNING examines mid-1990s university politics from racial, sexual, and economic standpoints. At fictional Columbus University (where a statue of the explorer stands witness to the dominant culture's supremacy), three freshman arrive to find a campus ready to explode. Malik (Omar Epps) wavers among the influences of revolution-preaching super-senior Fudge (Ice Cube), no-excuses Professor Phipps (Laurence Fishburne), and his motivated girlfriend Deja (Tyra Banks). Kristen (Kristy Swanson), another neophyte, is thrown into sexual confusion when she meets a charismatic lesbian, while the socially inept Remy (Michael Rapaport) can only fit in with the local skinheads. The storylines cross and complicate as each character tries to discover what's right, but the potential for violence grows with every wrong choice they make. Singleton recruited an emsemble of considerable talent to flesh out the complex plot, which allows him to deal efficiently with a breadth of concerns without preaching.

      This movie speaks to the heart of racism on a college campus, and it's very eye opening. All incoming freshman should be made to watch this. Diversity is not a bad thing. It's what's in the heart and mind that makes some people down right hateful of others.

      Good movie from the 90's about race, class, and sexism on college campuses.....Laurence Fishburne, Ice Cube, Tyra Banks, Busta Rhymes, Regina King, Michael Rappaport, Omar Epps....not an Oscar winner by any means, but an entertaining movie, especially if you were a fan of any of these actors/entertainers.
