There’s a reason why this film is a classic. It’s a film that women can still relate to.

One more classic to throw into the bunch. This time its Spike Lee’s School Daze. What’s great about this film is that it’s not just about a battle between sororities and fraternities in a black university but rather an exploration into black culture issues such as colorism and black hair texture. Overall, this is a fun musical comedy that you and your squad will enjoy!
