Legendary filmmaker Spike Lee who has directed movies on black culture, politics and issues within the community like “Malcolm X”, “BlackKkKlansman”, and “Do the Right Thing” is going to have his own exhibit in the Brooklyn Museum this fall from October 6th, 2023 to February 4th, 2024.

Although Lee was born in Atlanta, he was raised right here in the big apple in Brooklyn, where the museum will focus on seven topics that are important to his life, which include “Black history and culture, Brooklyn, sports, music, cinema history, family, and politics—are explored with more than three hundred works drawn from his personal collection.” Artworks will also be displayed by famous Black American artists such as “Kehinde Wiley, Deborah Roberts, and Michael Ray Charles” which will be showcased alongside “instruments once owned by legendary musicians, as well as historical photographs, sports and movie memorabilia”, which all had an important influence on Lee’s “incisive storytelling” as a whole.
