I had the unique pleasure of interviewing the G.O.A.T of filmmaking—SPIKE LEE—for today’s edition of UPFRONT.  The award-winning director, actor, producer and cinema legend was in town to promote the 30th Anniversary Screening of his film, School Daze, which is taking place on Monday, February 19 at the Fabulous Fox Theatre.

Mr. Lee stopped by the WCLK 91.9 studios to chat with me about the event and his iconic musical that originally debuted in theaters on February 12, 1988.

Today's UPFRONT is another exciting one! We continue our celebration of Black History Month with interviews from the cast of TV One’s original movie Behind the Movement. Isaiah Washington, Loretta Devine and Roger G. Smith open up about their characters that helped shape the iconic Civil Rights Movement. The film airs tomorrow night at 7 p.m. EST.
