Spike Lee Giving A Free Lecture In Chicago In Feb.

Spike Lee Giving A Free Lecture In Chicago In Feb.

Just got the lowdown on this and it’s good news for all our readers in and around the Chicagoland area.

Spike Lee will be giving a free (I said FREE) lecture in the University Library at Chicago State University located at 9501 S. King Dr (as in Martin Luther King Dr.) in Chicago on Weds Feb 8 at 6PM.

No word on what the topic of his lecture will be yet, but there will be also a Q and A following his speech, and possibly a panel with Spike and other filmmakers and cineastes.

No doubt he’ll discuss something about his new film Red Hook Summer premiering this month at Sundance.

And did I mention that it’s free?

I'd love to attend and tell him to get over himself, and ask him how Quentin Tarantino was supposed to make a movie about slavery without using the "N" word. As a white guy, Django Unchained showed me more about that terrible time in our history and how poorly men can, did, and still do treat each other. Of course, as a white guy without a death wish, I'm not allowed on the south side of Chicago so I can only hope someone else asks him this stuff. He is a racist hypocrite.

Is there a way to stream the lecture??


Awesome, awesome and MORE awesome. I will be there–wouldn't miss this for the world–no choice I live THISCLOSE to the university.


I'll be driving from Detroit to do an interview. This is BIG! When was the last time Spike did a lecture in the midwest?


Ot kinda, Will someone ask him about the difficulties of the OldBoy remake. It just seems soo bizarre.


Being from Illinois myself and Spike being one of my favorite filmmakers this is the opportunity of a lifetime to actually go to Chicago State University and hear and meet a wonderful director like Mr. Lee. Can`t wait!!!!!!
