      Black History Month Film Series: Slam

      Fiction, 1998.

      Raymond "Ray" Joshua (played by Saul Williams) is a young man from Southeast D.C. Despite his innate gift for poetry and his aspiration to be a rapper, he finds it difficult to escape the pressures of his surroundings: violence and drug dealing. Joshua Ray is a small-time convicted dealer who discovers his gift for verbal expression through prison poetry teacher Lauren. Released on bail, he becomes a top reciter at the competitive meetings and events, but he still has to decide whether to turn his friends in, in return for a shorter sentence and the chance of relationship with Lauren, or take the rap and ten years.
