Morningside Prep

Home / / Morningside Prep
This was my “calling card” to the industry. It proved I could tell a dramatic and comedic story on film. It went on to garner several festival awards and aired on public and cable television. The story of two black students (one a conformist, the other a rebel) and how they negotiate the mores of a predominantly white New York City prep school grew out of my own experiences. It stars, amongst others, a pre-The Wire, Wood Harris. It is available for rent.
