There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

Leroy “Preach” Jackson (Glynn Turman) and Richard “Cochise” Morris (Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs) are two high school friends coming of age in Chicago’s Cabrini-Green housing project. With music teeming with Motown Hitmakers, this Black classic, directed by Michael Schultz (CAR WASH, KRUSH GROOVE), has influenced Spike Lee and John Singleton and has been deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” by the Library of Congress to enter the 2021 National Registry for Film Preservation.
