*Monday night in New York, Spike Lee premiered the latest film in his “Chronicles of Brooklyn” series RED HOOK SUMMER.
Hundreds came out to support the iconic writer/director including Mike Tyson, Gayle King, Laila Ali, Debra Lee, Stephen Hill, Mona Scott-Young, Romany Malco, Jamie Hector, Toure, Nelson George, Ilyasah Shabazz and many more.
But take a close look at Debra Lee in the pic with Toure’, Stephen Hill and Regginald Hudlin (click the photo to make it larger). The Queen of BET has gone natural, which seems very timely given all the hoopla about Olympic gold-winning phenom, Gabby Douglas’ hair. So whatcha think?
RED HOOK SUMMER tells the story of Flik Royale, a sullen young boy from middle-class Atlanta who spends the summer with his deeply religious grandfather, Bishop Enoch Rouse, in the housing projects of Red Hook.
The film opens August 10 in New York City & Los Angeles and wider on August 24. Visit www.redhooksummer.com for more information.
