We want everybody to remember and engage with our house’s mission for social justice, and we invite you to watch a contemporary classic "Do the Right Thing" with us!

“Do the Right Thing,” about a day in the life of a Bed-Stuy neighborhood on the hottest day of the year, starts with its heroes waking up and ends the next morning, after a night that includes a fight, police brutality that ends in murder, and a riot. The movie was controversial when it came out—some publicly speculated that it would ignite violence—but, as in the character Radio Raheem’s monologue about his love-hate set of brass knuckles, love won. “Do the Right Thing” reignited interest in Malcolm X and encouraged a broader cultural reappraisal of his ideas; it inspired independent filmmakers; it made a zillion teen-agers into Public Enemy fans."
