Cult Cinema celebrates Black History Month with this groundbreaking ghetto drama about the challenges of coming of age in the inner city. Ricky and Doughboy are brothers on different paths, one towards college and the other towards a life of crime, while their best friend Tre is trying to make sense of the world around him with the help of his father’s stern upbringing, but in the ‘hood violence is never far away. Twenty-four year old John Singleton made his filmmaking debut with this semi-autobiographical story of growing up in South Central Los Angeles, and became both the first African American to be nominated for a best director Oscar, and the youngest person ever nominated for the award.
