Mike Tyson and Sway
Last night in New York, Spike Lee premiered the latest film in his "Chronicles of Brooklyn" series: Red Hook Summer. Hundreds came out to support the iconic writer/director including Mike Tyson, Gayle King, Laila Ali, Debra Lee, Mona Scott-Young, and many more.
The film tells the story of Flik Royale, a sullen young boy from middle-class Atlanta who spends the summer with his deeply religious grandfather, Bishop Enoch Rouse, in the housing projects of Red Hook.
The cast - Clarke Peters, Nate Parker, Thomas Jefferson Byrd, Jules Brown, Toni Lysaith, Heather Alicia Simms, James Ransone and more -- was all smiles throughout the evening, which ended at a festive after-party at Frank's Lounge in Ft. Greene, Brooklyn.
The film opens August 10 in New York City and wider on August 24.
