After Boyz N the Hood (1991) and Poetic Justice (1993), writer-director Singleton shifted his attention from the ghetto to America's embattled universities and their struggle with multiculturalism.
Higher Learning enrols three new students (Epps, Swanson and Rapaport) at the fictional Columbus University and watches them evolve under the pressures of outside forces: black and white militancy, feminism and their new-found liberty.
