The Yale University Library and Yale Film Archive present a movie screening:
“Crooklyn” (Spike Lee, 1994)
Alfre Woodard and Delroy Lindo lead the cast in a semi-autobiographical family tale written by siblings Spike, Joie, and Cinqué Lee. Set 50 years ago in Bed-Stuy, this “warmly nostalgic coming-of-age drama” is “at once street smart and sweetly sentimental” (Joe Leydon). The Staple Singers, Sly Stone, Curtis Mayfield, Smokey Robinson, and Stevie Wonder grace the soundtrack.
