I started this movie with the intent of falling asleep on it and watching it in the morning, my normal routine with most shows and movies. I find myself on another cup of coffee this morning due to lack of sleep. The movie held my attention throughout its 2hr runtime.
It’s a great coming of age story that ties in 2 cultures that most people aren’t aware of- the strict Nigerian American culture and the fascinating mystery that is Black Greek Letter Organization culture. There are countless movies depicting black Greek life in a negative culture, but this is the first that I’ve seen that celebrates the good, the bad and the frowned upon. Most organizations have a strict non-hazing policy, but the fictional Tau Alpha Zeta does what a lot of organizations have done in the past with unsanctioned pledging. However, through this process, you see the bonds that grow between the young men and the growth and development of its lead character, Dayo.
Through Dayo, we see the clash of cultures and ideas between Black Americans (US born people of African descent, which mostly consists of descendants from slavery) and 1st generation African Americans (migrated from Africa). Despite multiple commonalities, there’s been a well documented disconnect. The conflict between Dayo and his father explores this and adds more depth to the movie, outside of the tense action, comedy and drama of the pledging process.
For those questioning the “lack of diversity” in an all black cast, I assume aren’t aware of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). For that, I implore you to conduct your own research on the matter, along with the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC). If you have no interest or awareness in either topics, this film may not be worth your time. It’s definitely on my Black History Month watchlist
Definitely enjoyed the film, it is worth the watch.
