Spike Lee Hosts the 9th Annual Brooklyn Loves Michael Jackson + She’s Gotta Have It Block Party

August 29, 2017

The 9th Annual Brooklyn Loves Michael Jackson + She’s Gotta Have It Block Party Sponsored by Jet Blue on Saturday, August 26th was hosted by Brooklyn’s Own Spike Lee and Actress Rosie Perez. The block party took place in Bedford-Stuyvestant, Brooklyn on the renamed street Do The Right Thing Way. The party pays tribute to Michael Jackson and is a celebration of his contributions to music. The street was filled with MJ fans from everywhere. The day long party included Michael Jackson music by DJ Spinna, a performance by Talib Kweli, and to top off the day there was a thriller performance and MJ look alikes and fans showcased their MJ moves. 

The block party also included a celebration of “She’s Gotta Have It”, Spike’s first feature film in 1986, new series of 10 episodes that will appear on Netflix on Thanksgiving Day. “She’s Gotta Have It” depicts the life of woman who is seeing three men. We look forward to seeing the current day’s version of the film.

A great way to celebrate the King of Pop Michael Jackson. We miss you MJ and thanks to Spike Lee for keeping MJ’s memory alive!
