On Thursday, July 13, we'll have a screening of Lee's Do the Right Thing. On Friday, July 14, attend a Rodney Block Collective concert featuring music from Lee's films.

Do the Right Thing depicts what happens when the hottest day of the summer exacerbates the racial tensions simmering in one Brooklyn neighborhood. Written and directed by Spike Lee, this 1989 comedy-drama was nominated for Golden Globes and Oscars, as well as the Palme D'Or at Cannes. In 1999, it was selected by the National Film Preservation Board for inclusion in the Library of Congress's National Film Registry.

Rodney Block is an Arkansas native and classically-trained jazz musician whose work blends traditional jazz, gospel, hip-hop, bebop, funk, and soul.
