Few movie directors have tackled issues of race in America more directly and more insightfully than Spike Lee. Early Spike films such as She’s Gotta Have It, Do the Right Thing, and Mo Better Blues challenged traditional Hollywood stereotypes and revolutionized the depiction of black America on the big screen. Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences and the Alvin Sherman Library present a screening of an early a Spike Lee film and a discussion led by several faculty members from the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences about the debates and controversies that accompanied films in the 1990s. Location: Sherman Library, room 4009. For more information, contact David Kilroy at 954 262 8021 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
