Spike Lee Speaks About Kevin Garnett Being Disrespectful

by DG

In a recent interview, Spike Lee spoke about Kevin Garnett going off on him during a game.

But this last time against Boston — you know that game where they disallowed Stoudemire’s 3? — Kevin Garnett lost it. He was cursing me out for no reason. Maybe because Stoudemire gave him 39 points, but take that vulgarity to Stoudemire. I’m not holding you and I did not even say s— to Garnett the whole game. That really surprised me. He lost it. He was cursing at me the whole game. He needs to calm the f— down.

ESPN Town Hall Meeting: Image of the Black Athlete

by DG

I watched this the other night on ESPN and was very fascinated. Spike Lee, Jalen Rose, John Calipari, Marion Jones, Randy Shannon, and Michael Wilbon were on the panel. Many of the problems they discussed are hardly mentioned in the media but always talked about within black communities.  I believe this is a very critical conversation to have and hope this spurs some type of debate. Hit the jump below to watch the meeting which took place in the church Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. preached in; Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, GA.

The Library of Congress adds Spike Lee’s “Malcolm X” to the National Film Registry

by DG

BALTIMORE — The Library of Congress has selected Spike Lee’s 1992 biopic about Malcolm X and a 1959 film dramatization of a discussion between blacks and whites about jazz are among the images that will be preserved as part of its National Film Registry.

The 25 films selected this year include “Malcolm X,” which starred Denzel Washington as the civil rights leader, and “Cry of Jazz,” a 35-minute analysis of the origins of jazz – played out through black and white actors representing different points of view.

The Library of Congress announced the selections earlier today (Tues., Dec. 28). The goal of the registry, which began in 1989, isn’t to identify the best movies ever made, but to preserve films with artistic, cultural or historical significance.

”The Empire Strikes Back,” “Saturday Night Fever,” and “Airplane” will also join the registry this year.
