Episode 62 – Doing The Right Thing

Here at the 17 Waverly Podcast we know that to be silent is to be complicit. Black lives matter. So, as the messiest film/tv podcast you have never heard of, we wanted to dedicate this episode to appreciate excellent Black films and performances. Join us as we talk about 1965’s ‘A Patch of Blue’ starring Academy Award winner Sidney Poitier (0:03:15), the 2018 excellent adaptation of James Baldwin’s ‘If Beale Street Could Talk’ (0:22:00) , Spike Lee’s ‘Malcolm X’ (he inspired Magneto never forget it)(0:40:15) and finally, Spike’s iconic 1989 film (which clearly has not aged at all) ‘Do the Right Thing’ (0:54:20).

Below are some important links to petitions to sign and places to donate so that we can all be part of the change!
