Come one, come all! Join us in watching Higher Learning, starring Omar Epps, Lawrence Fishburne, Ice Cube, and a host of other celebrities. This film explores the up close, and personal experience of students who encounter racial tension, rape, and other injustices on a university campus. The film projects how these students are affected, how they cope, and foster change within their environment.

Synopsis

Youngsters from different countries, races, and social background are forced to integrate when they all enroll in Columbus University. They all have their own problems, such as finance, harrassment, personal safety, and self doubt. Additionally, campus life seems to be causing a problem for everyone: racism. Students, already under pressure to perform in the classroom, on the track, or in front of their friends, are strained to the breaking point by prejudice, inexperience, and misunderstanding
