Today marks the 25th anniversary of Spike Lee’s (1989) Do The Right Thing.
Thinking about this ground-breaking film reminded me of the recent passing
of the great Ruby Dee 1922-2014.
MOTHER SISTER: Good morning, Mookie.
MOOKIE : Good morning to you.
MOTHER SISTER: Now, Mookie, don’t work too hard
today. The man said it’s gonna be HOT as the devil.
I don’t want ya falling out from the heat.
You hear me, son?
MOOKIE : I hear ya, Mother Sister. I hear you.
MOTHER SISTER : Good. I’ll be watching ya, son.
Mother Sister always watches.
