Join us as we honor late director John Singleton, the first African-American director as well as the youngest director to be nominated for an Academy Award at the age of 24, with a screening of Boyz n the Hood, the movie that ushered in his historic career. Singleton died at the age of 51 on April 29, 2019, after suffering a stroke on April 17.
Tre (Cuba Gooding Jr.) is sent to live with his father, Furious Styles (Larry Fishburne), in tough South Central Los Angeles. Although his hard-nosed father instills proper values and respect in him, and his devout girlfriend Brandi (Nia Long) teaches him about faith, Tre’s friends Doughboy (Ice Cube) and Ricky (Morris Chestnut) don’t have the same kind of support and are drawn into the neighborhood’s booming drug and gang culture, with increasingly tragic results.
