From executive producer Spike Lee comes a controversial film that taps into one of the most explosive
issues of our time. With a powerful cast including Eriq LaSalle, Ving Rhames, and Vondie Curtis-Hall,
Drop Squad is a blistering "selling out" their race for personal gain.
The Drop (Deprogramming and Restoration of Pride) Squad is an outlaw organization that abducts and
"deprograms" African-Americans who exploit and/or deny their cultural heritage. Its latest target
is Bruford Jamison, Jr. (LaSalle), an advertising executive who creates ads the Squad considers racially offensive.
But as the group's persuasive methods become increasingly violent, its charismatic leader (Curtis-Hall) must
wrestle with a disturbing question: Has his organization lost its way as surely as the brothers and sisters
it seeks to reform? Bristling with conflict, tension, and provocative themes, Drop Squad is an insightful
look at an issue of importance to people of all races. It is a story both timely and timeless, pulsating
with emotion and meaning.
