Details

Do the Right Thing is arguably Spike Lee's best feature film, and one of the most popular and celebrated examples of African America's ongoing 'new black film wave'. From hip-hop fashions, Afrocentric colours and rap music, to police brutality, gentrification and non-white immigration, deindustrialisation and joblessness, Do the Right Thing depicts it all, from a contemporary African American point of view.

In the most incisive analysis yet of Lee's film, Ed Guerrero explores its nuanced blend of art, politics and commercial instinct. Do the Right Thing, Guerrero shows, epitomises a creative practice that confronts institutional discrimination and power relations head on.

Ed Guerrero is Associate Professor of Cinema Studies and Africana Studies at New York University and author of Framing Blackness: The African American Image in Film. He sits on the National Film Preservation Board at the Library of Congress.
