Deirdre Childress Hopkins explores the world, entertainment and sports

I’m offering a bit from Spike Lee today because the day of the Oscar nominations could not pass without hearing a bit from Lee about the state of films and African Americans.

Link to Boston.com is below and thanks to them for letting us know what he said:

PARK CITY, Utah—Spike Lee just premiered the fifth film in his “continuing chronicles of Brooklyn, N.Y.,” at the Sundance Film Festival, but the filmmaker is still frustrated at the lack of diversity in the entertainment industry.

Lee said Monday that in the “upper echelons of television and studios, it’s 1950. It’s Eisenhower.”
