Responding to criticism that his latest film, "School Daze," shows black college students in an unflattering light, director Spike Lee said Tuesday night that he "knew it would make people squirm," but that the film drew faithfully upon his own student experiences at Atlanta's Morehouse College. "Nothing in this film is made up," Lee told a Howard University audience in Washington during a televised panel discussion that was transmitted by satellite to 200 black colleges across the nation. Outside the auditorium a handful of students distributed flyers describing "School Daze" as a "cinematic perversion of black life."
