Spike Lee’s 5 most popular quotes

  • I think black people have to be in control of their own image because film is a powerful medium. We can’t just sit back and let other people define our existence.
  • I don’t think my films are going to get rid of racism or prejudice. I think the best thing my films can do is provoke discussion.
  • I think people who have faults are a lot more interesting than people who are perfect.
  • All directors are storytellers, so the motivation was to tell the story I wanted to tell. That’s what I love.
  • It comes down to this: black people were stripped of our identities when we were brought here, and it’s been a quest since then to define who we are.
