Do the Right thing (1989)
Do The Right Thing is a Spike Lee film about a hot day in a Brooklyn neighborhood. Racist tensions continue to mount throughout the day until a major event becomes tragic. Spike Lee plays alongside Danny Aiello, Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee and Giancarlo Esposito.
Do the Right Thing is one of Spike Lee’s best films. It features a number of future stars, including Rosie Perez, Martin Lawrence, and Samuel L. Jackson. This is a film that uses clever writing to address issues of race that, sadly, are still relevant today.
Black History Month is only one month in the year, but movies like Hidden Figures, Do The Right Thing, and Black Panther can be viewed at any time of the year, especially to celebrate black artists and art.
