Spike Lee’s 1988 film School Daze explores the interactions and tensions between sorority and fraternity members at a fictional historically black college in Atlanta, roughly based on such schools as Clark Atlanta University and Lee’s alma mater Morehouse College. While mostly lighthearted, it touches on some more serious issues such as campus activism and discrimination among blacks based on skin tone and hair type.
It’s the last in a series of Monday evening Spike Lee screenings taking place at Karamu in July. A happy hour at the bar precedes the film and a panel discussions with members of black Greek organizations will follow.
Admission is $5.
