Do The Right Thing

"Fight the power!" On a sweltering summer day, the residents of a single Bed-Stuy block try to stay cool and stay sane, until a boycott of the local pizzeria brings the neighborhood's racial tensions to a shocking head. Brimming with pop energy and protest spirit, Spike Lee's masterpiece endures not only as a black cinema landmark, but as one of the most memorable films of its era.
