We’re proud to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Cooley High.
Cooley High, with its focus on the coming of age of a group of teenagers, offered a
contrast to the Blaxploitation films that had arisen during the late 1960s and early ‘70s.
Rather than focusing on larger-than-life protagonists and outrageous crime syndicates,
Cooley High depicted the everyday lives and problems of typical urban high schoolers
and their families, and helped to usher in a new type of black cinema” Taken from
Academy Awards- A tribute to director Michael Schultz.
