Events: Spike Lee To Host “Do The Right Thing” 25th Anniversary Block Party

“Let me tell you the story of Right Hand, Left Hand. It’s a tale of good and evil…”

Spike Lee’s iconic motion picture “Do The Right Thing”, which challenged viewers to take a long look at race relations and police brutality in 1980’s Brooklyn, will be celebrating its 25 anniversary in style this weekend. The writer/director of the classic will be hosting a major block party this Saturday, in recognition of New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio officially naming that infamous Stuyvesant Avenue block, “Do The Right Thing” way.

Lee has been extremely vocal about the gentrification of the beloved borough for quite some time; vowing to raise awareness of the very serious issue of forcing minorities out of their own dwellings for “trendy newcomers”.

The best part about all of this? The event is FREE.

The “Do The Right Thing”  block party will be held Saturday, June 28, from 12pm to 6pm on Stuyvesant Avenue between Lexington and Quincy. Support your community and head on down!
