Do The Right Thing (1989)
Do The Right Thing is a Spike Lee movie about one hot day in a Brooklyn neighborhood. All day, racial tensions continue to rise until a major event turns tragic. Spike Lee stars alongside Danny Aiello, Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee, and Giancarlo Esposito.
Do the Right Thing is one of Spike Lee’s best films. It includes a bunch of future stars, including Rosie Perez, Martin Lawrence, and Samuel L. Jackson. This is a film that uses clever writing to address topics of race that are, unfortunately, still relevant today.
Black History Month is only one month out of the year, but movies like Hidden Figures, Do The Right Thing, and Black Panther can be watched any time of the year, especially to celebrate Black artists and art.
