A host of celebrities came out to support director Spike Lee on Monday (Aug. 6) in New York City as he premiered his latest film in his “Chronicles of Brooklyn” series: Red Hook Summer. Guest included R&B singer Chester Gregory, Reality TV producer Mona Scott-Young, Gayle King, Laila Ali, Debra Lee, Stephen Hill and many more.
Red Hook Summer 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 film opens August 10 in New York City and wider on August 24.
