Description

This presentation is sponsored by MUSACK, Res Ipsa and Stoke ACK.

This special presentation of Do the Right Thing is presented in partnership with MUSACK, and free to Dreamland members! Don't miss a special introduction and Q&A at 7:30pm, featuring host DONICK CARY in a live Zoom conversation with the one-and-only FLAVOR FLAV, a former member of Public Enemy, which wrote and recorded the classic anthem "Fight the Power" for this Spike Lee joint.

Salvatore "Sal" Fragione (Danny Aiello) is the Italian owner of a pizzeria in Brooklyn. A neighborhood local, Buggin' Out (Giancarlo Esposito), becomes upset when he sees that the pizzeria's Wall of Fame exhibits only Italian actors. Buggin' Out believes a pizzeria in a black neighborhood should showcase black actors, but Sal disagrees. The wall becomes a symbol of racism and hate to Buggin' Out and to other people in the neighborhood, and tensions rise.
