ICYMI: Photos from 25th Anniversary Screenplay Reading of 'Do The Right Thing'

Yesterday, protests erupted across the country as part of #BlackoutBlackFriday, a nationwide retail boycott and day of action surrounding human rights. In New York, “Fruitvale Station” director and Blackout for Human Rights founder Ryan Coogler, along with “Newlyweeds” director Shaka King, held a screenplay reading of Spike Lee’s 1988 second draft of “Do The Right Thing.” 

Led by a 25-person cast that included “Fruitvale” stars Michael B. Jordan and Melonie Diaz, John Turturro, Frankie Faison, Yolonda Ross and others, the event was held free and open to the public at Lincoln Center’s Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center Amphitheater in New York. 

For those that missed it or weren’t in New York, Eugene Hernendez of Lincoln Center logged several photos from the event. See them below, and find Eugene’s writeup on the night HERE.
