Director John Singleton's Higher Learning follows three very different freshman students in their first term of university, who find themselves having to reassess their lives and confront such thought-provoking issues as prejudice, racism and sexism. Former high school track star Malik Williams finds that instead of cruising through his first year of an athletic scholarship, he's actually going to have to run faster and harder in order to make the grade.
Naive Kirstin Conne is ill prepared for a completely different aspect of college life - not only does she discover that male students don't always accept "no" for an answer, but she also starts to reassess her own sexual leanings. Finally, there's Remy, the sad, quiet kid from Idaho who nobody wants to befriend. Ultimately, he turns to the only group that will have him - the trouble-making neo-Nazi skinheads. Among the characters that act as forces in the lives of these three students are Professor Phillips and long-term student, Fudge who serve as positive role models as this provocative portrait of modern life builds to its searing and shocking climax.
