Zebrahead is a 1992 drama film, produced by Oliver Stone, directed by Anthony Drazan and starring Michael Rapaport (in his first film role) and N'Bushe Wright. Set in Detroit, Michigan, the film is about an interracial romance between a white man and a black woman and the resulting tensions among the characters. The film also stars Kevin Corrigan, Ray Sharkey, Lois Bendler.
Spike Lee's drama Jungle Fever was released in 1991, and Zebrahead was released the following year. As both films deal with interracial romance, Zebrahead was seen as an attempt to capitalize on the popularity of Lee's film. It was overlooked as a result.
This film was released as "The Colour of Love" in the United Kingdom.
Detroit rap artist "Frizzo", referenced the opening scene of Zebrahead in his music video for the song, "They Ain't Know" in which he is seen lighting the grass on fire in the same location that the film used.
