«This volume presents an intelligent, rigorous, and comprehensive collection of scholarship that examines Spike Lee’s work. It leaves little untouched. Sexuality, colorism, film music scores, art and set design, the intersection of his personal life with his professional craft, and even a Foreword from Lee himself; it is all here. All of this scholarship carefully deconstructs one of the nation’s most provocative cultural contributors. Do the right thing and read this book.» (JoEllen Fisherkeller, New York University)
