Samuel L. Jackson was so frustrated while studying at Georgia’s exclusive Morehouse College, he experimented with acid in a bid to beat his boredom.
The Pulp Fiction star fought against the highbrow all-black establishment.
He says, “Being in Morehouse was oppressive.
“Martin Luther King Jr. was an alumnus and they were trying to create a certain kind of black person–the ‘crème de la crème’ of blacks.
“There was something in me that said, that’s not who I am. I was not seeking to be accepted as an ordinary individual in society.
“I was looking to be exceptional. I wanted to be an adventurer. I was Burt Lancaster in The Crimson Pirate. You don’t get to be that by being a complacent negro.
“Taking drugs was part of that because the majority of youngsters I knew wouldn’t take hallucinogenics. I fell in love with acid.”
