Get On the Bus (1996)

 

Premiering one year after the historic Million Man March, Lee directs this film about a group of African-American men who are taking a cross-country bus trip to participate in the monumental march.  Along the way enemies become friends, differences are eased, and lives are changed forever. Although Lee doesn’t star in the film—like most of his work, up to this point—there is a character, Xavier (Hill Harper), who the others characters dismiss as a “Spike Lee, Jr.”
