Riverwest Public House Cooperative
815 E Locust St, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53212
Join ZIP MKE as we meet our neighbors from around Milwaukee, view Spike Lee's film together, and communicate honestly about its implications almost 30 years later for Milwaukee, for ourselves. The discussion will be facilitated by Dominic Inouye of ZIP MKE and Darius Smith of The Locals Gallery.
Spike Lee took the film world by storm in 1989 with DO THE RIGHT THING, which takes place during one day, the hottest day of summer, on one block in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, shared by African Americans, Italian Americans, Korean Americans, Puerto Ricans, Latinos and white police officers on patrol. Sal's Pizzeria becomes the epicenter of racial tension as the heat rises and the film's main question sizzles in everyone's mind: What does it mean to «do the right thing»?
Enjoy complimentary pizza. Riverwest Public House’s alcoholic and non-alcoholic options will be available for purchase.
