Filmmaker Spike Lee hosted a block party on Sunday in Bedford-Stuyvesant to celebrate the 30th anniversary of his 1989 film “Do the Right Thing.”
The party was from 12 to 7 p.m. and hosted on Stuyvesant Avenue between Lexington and Quincy -- where most of the film was shot. That stretch of Stuyvesant has since been named “Do the Right Thing Way.”
“It’s going to be lit,” Lee told TheWrap.
“Do the Right Thing” explores racial tensions in Brooklyn and has long been met with critical acclaim.
“This film’s going to hold up until the end of time,” Lee told the Daily News. “There was global warming, gentrification. The film, you could say, is ripped from the headlines presently.”
