Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing (1989) changed the lives of minorities across the country and raised the bar for African-American filmmakers, by portraying the gritty, true-to-life, images of racial division in New York. Giving us beloved characters like Mookie, Radio Raheem, and Tina, the film quickly made its way into the homes and hearts of millions. Last month Spike Lee celebrated the 25 year anniversary of the film and celebrities and artists alike, showed their support.
