CultureSOUL: "Do The Right Thing" - Opening credits sequence c. 1989
Rosie Perez went from Soul Train to starring in a Spike Lee joint. Her incendiary dance sequence which opens the movie was an instant classic. Working to PE’s legendary “Fight The Power”, she used her body as a form of protest. This is a female being just raging at the end of the Reagan era in Black America. A powerful clip and one of the great moments in Black cinema.
