School Daze (1988)

 

Now armed with a studio budget, Lee turned his cinematic gaze toward social life at a fictitious Black college and the student alliances formed along lines of skin shade. It’s the light-skinned, clannish “Wannabes” vs’ the political-minded, earthy, dark-skinned “Jiggaboos” (replete with a dueling musical number). This is Lee’s first attempt at a musical-drama.
