On Tuesday, Amazon Studios released the first trailer for Spike Lee’s forthcoming and long discussed film, Chi-Raq. From the visuals, this movie is likely to draw a lot of attention.
Earlier we reported that director Spike Lee was working on a documentary about Little League World Series breakout star Mo’ne Davis.
The short documentary, Throw Like a Girl, chronicles how Mo’ne was discovered and became involved in baseball. The documentary also shows Mo’ne playing basketball, her favorite sport.
Filmmaker Spike Lee is hoping to make a documentary about Little League World Series star Mo’ne Davis and her team.
Along with Chicago’s Jackie Robinson West team, Davis captured the hearts of watchers of the Little League World Series.
Film director Spike Lee has erected a memorial outside his Fort Greene studio for Eric Garner, the 43-year-old father of six who died while being arrested by police in Staten Island.
Garner died on July 18 after police placed him in a chokehold, an illegal move, for selling loose cigarettes.
The family residing at the address Spike Lee tweeted shortly after the George Zimmerman verdict is suing the famous director.
David and Elaine McClain claim that Lee was so filled with hate that he put the wrong address on social media, placing the elderly couple in harm’s way.
In the lawsuit … the McClains say they received numerous death threats and hate mail … and feared for their lives as their address was re-Tweeted countless times.
According to Shadow and Act, Spike Lee has a script for the sequel to his classic 2nd full length film “School Daze.”
The film would be set 25 years later.
I had the script for [the sequel] to School Daze… a contemporary version, same school… 25 years later. Hopefully I can get Laurence Fishburne to play Dap…
Eunique Jones has created a photographic sensation with her “Because of Them, We Can-Black History and Beyond” campaign and has taken the movement to KICKSTARTER.
The plan is to raise $80,000 by June 19th, to produce a high quality book contained with all 365 images of kids turned icons.
The KICKSTARTER project will cover design and layout, copyediting, printing and delivering expenses for the book.
While the National conversation about the lack of Black history in education persists, Eunique has found her niche to continuously impact the world and creatively educate Black chidlren about the power of their people.
Legendary comedian Dick Gregory went off on Spike Lee over his widely-publicized criticism of the film Django Unchained.
Gregory is clearly a big fan and supporter of Tarantino’s controversial movie, and thinks Lee’s critique of the film was unfair (since he never actually saw it) and hypocritical.
He then calls out Lee for criticizing a film that he’s never seen, saying that if anyone has created movies that are disrespectful to our ancestors, it’s Lee himself:
After 2 years of staying single—going on “dates” with various womyn, initiating quasi relationships—I’m back into an exclusive relationship. What I’ve learned over these consistently dynamic months (everyday was not easy), is that you can love multiple womyn—truly be crazy about the personalities of different people at the same time—but you must choose one for the sake of their emotional stability. I “chose” one person to call my girlfriend because she deserved a relationship that she could take seriously.
