Riveted by Spike

     Filmmaker Spike Lee (middle) greets his appreciative audience after giving the keynote address for Skidmore’s Black History Month celebration in February. Lee is the director of She’s Gotta Have It, Do the Right Thing, X, and other acclaimed films. In a speech and Q & A session that lasted more than an hour, Lee offered frank and witty commentary about race, success, and American culture. The talk was simulcast to several campus locations to accommodate the overflow crowd of 1,000-plus .
