Spike the Punch: Malcolm X
April 29 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Florida International University’s Wolfsonian Public Humanities Lab presents Spike the Punch: Malcolm X. Spike the Punch, in collaboration with Iris PhotoCollective, celebrates the art and meanings in Spike Lee’s early films Do the Right Thing (1989), She’s Gotta Have It (1986) , and Malcolm X (1992). A screening of the film is preceded by a community conversation with Shawn Christian, Chair and Professor of English at Florida International University and Carl Phillipe Juste, Senior Journalist at the Miami Herald, about the multiple meanings of defiance in the film and in current times.
Funding for this community conversation is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Greater Good: Humanities in Academia Grant with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with Florida International University. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
