He’s gotta have it. Lucky for us, Spike Lee is addicted to stimulating storytelling. And after two decades of meticulously and artistically painting Black America on the big screen, the prolific filmmaker shows no signs of slowing down. His latest release, “Miracle at St. Anna,” now on DVD, details the struggles of Buffalo Soldiers fighting foreign enemies during World War II in Italy and racism while home in America. In between belly laughs, Lee opens up to ESSENCE.com on Black America’s past and future, his one critique of President Obama’s inauguration and the real deal on a James Brown biopic.
