The Prep School Negro


A documentary by Andre Robert Lee, a former private school kid himself, that treats an under-represented subject in film and literature for that matter: those juggling two apparently separate worlds and defying what, in some people's eyes, is an oxymoron in putting prep school and negro next to each other. Raises some interesting questions over how to gain an experience in another climate without losing what is inherited socially and culturally and if that is a concern that should even matter as much as it does for these children.
Also features Dame Dash saying one of the realest/most interesting things that has ever come out of his mouth.
See: The Prep School Negro for more info on screenings. No word yet on any UK screenings but I'm sure some industrious and well connected person will make that happen if enough people are interested.
