Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Higher Learning

Omar Epps stars as Malik, a college freshman track star. In this gritty account of racism, date rape, and finding identity, we see how Malik's group of friends clash with campus security and neo nazis in this harrowing tale from director John Singleton. Fishburne is riveting as the professor who teaches Malik valuable lessons in responsibility and life.
