Spike Lee Holding Block Party For 25th Anniversary of “Do The Right Thing”

(AllHipHop News) This Saturday (June 28th) Bedstuy may be the answer to the question “Where’s Brooklyn At?” Today  (June 26th), it’s announced that Spike Lee will hold a block party to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Do The Right Thing.

Spike Lee’s seminal film was originally released on June 30th, 1989 and yesterday (June 25th) Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams declared  that day as “Do the Right Thing Day”. To commemorate the first ever Do The Right Thing Day, Lee will hold a free block party on Stuyvesant Ave between Lexington and Quincy this where the film was mostly shot.

Three weeks ago Spike Lee prematurely announced on his personal Instagram that the film had a Brooklyn street named after it.

The block party will take place this Saturday between 12:00 pm and 6:00pm
