Big Memorial Planned at USC Alma Mater

John Singleton will get one last official sendoff from his fans, friends and family … and it’s going down where he graduated film school.

TMZ’s learned the late famed director will have a big memorial celebration at USC on May 21 from 11-2 PM. We’re told details are still being worked out regarding which celebs may speak or perform … but several have already RSVP’d they’ll be there. 

As we reported … a private funeral and Celebration of Life was held last week for John’s closest friends and loved ones — like Ludacris, Ice Cube, Tyrese, Maxine Waters, Ving Rhames and Jim Brown — but the USC event will be much larger.

We’re told it’s not going to be a total free-for-all for the public … it won’t be super small like the funeral, but a few thousand invites will go out. 

The memorial will showcase Singleton’s past work and pay homage to his life and career.

Singleton died on April 28 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. after being taken off life support following a massive stroke on April 17. The “Boyz n the Hood” director had been in a coma in ICU since then.

He was 51.
