On Wednesday morning, Complex News made its way to the Fort Greene headquarters of acclaimed director Spike Lee's production company, 40 Acres and a Mule, to catch up with him on a number of things.
Over the course of an interview with Complex senior writer Russ Bengtson, Lee showed off the murals outside his offices of two unarmed black men who were recently killed by police: Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri and Eric Garner of Staten Island. He later spoke with Complex about what the murals mean to him, why he's worried about running out of space, and why he joined a recent protest of their deaths—by bike, no less—to get involved in the mix, and what he saw there.
He also, quite presciently, predicted the outcome of Garner's case only a few hours before it was announced, and had another prediction on top of it: That if he's right, and a grand jury doesn't return with an indictment, things could get bad. Check out the interview in the video above.
