I'm Thankful For...

The films of Spike Lee. Ever since I saw 4 Little Girls, which chronicles the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama in 1963, the young lives lost in the tragedy, and the impact the attack had on the community and the nation, I’ve been a fan of Spike Lee. Controversial, hard-hitting, and thought-provoking, I count some of his movies as among my favorites.
