What is it about: This series follows a young man’s journey to join a Black Greek letter fraternity on a Black college campus.
Why Makes This Smart: This is not just an anti-hazing or even just a series about Greek Letter organizations. The creator and directed said in a recent interview that he created the series because of the lack of depth in mainstream flicks about the Black college student experience. Mostly, what we see are steps shows and Hillman College. However any of us, who are proud graduates and students of our prestigious HBCUs knows they got their shit with them too. And I must say he did a phenomenal job of pulling back the sterilized layers to highlight important issues facing both students and the institutions themselves including domestic abuse, drugs, super seniors, financial insolvency (both the institution and the student) and brotherhood. All that is missing is a spades game.
