A Conversation with Spike Lee Interviewed by James McBride
Interviewed by James McBride
Hear Lee discuss his work and ideas with noted author and musician James McBride.
McBride gained fame for The Color of Water (1996), his classic memoir about growing up in a biracial Brooklyn family led by his remarkable mother, a rabbi's daughter who married an African American preacher. Lee's next film, currently in production, is based on Miracle at St. Anna, McBride's acclaimed first novel. Its story is a panoramic yet intimate tale about four African American soldiers in Italy during World War II and how their wartime experiences shape their later lives.
