School Daze is a dramatic, musical comedy that takes an inside look at life on the campus of an all-black college. Written and directed by Spike Lee and released to theatres in 1988, the movie stars Laurence Fishburne, Giancarlo Esposito, Tisha Campbell, Spike Lee, Ossie Davis, Bill Nunn, Jasmine Guy, Branford Marsalis and Kadeem Hardison. School Daze focuses on Vaughn "Dap" Dunlap (Laurence Fishburne), who is a politically conscious African-American student at Mission College. Dap leads anti-apartheid demonstrations and encourages students and school administrators to completely divest from South Africa. At the same time he is feuding with a Greek fraternal system member, Julian Eaves (Giancarlo Esposito) aka Dean Big Brother Almighty of Gamma Phi Gamma Fraternity, Incorporated. Dap's younger cousin, Darrell (Spike Lee) known as "Half-Pint", is a Gamma pledge. Jane Toussaint (Tisha Campbell) is the head of the Gamma women's auxiliary, the Gamma Rays, and leads them in their battles with non-Greek fellow co-eds. The entire cast of characters gets caught up in rivalries, rituals, romance and relationships during an eventful homecoming weekend. School Daze is loaded with non-stop music and features dance numbers choreographed by Otis Sallad.
