Spike gets his Props

Spike Lee was honored recently by Chrysler LLC with their "Behind The Lens" distinction for outstanding achievements in Film and Television. With a body of work that includes over 35 films through Lee's 40 Acres & A Mule Filmworks, Lee is recognized as a leading director, producer, and screenplay writer in the entertainment industry. Lee's first feature film, "She's Gotta Have It", was shot in two weeks on a $175,000 budget. The film went on to gross $7 million dollars at the box office. Talk about amazing!

Chrysler Senior Vice President - External Affairs and Public Policy (Auburn Hills), Frank Fountain shares, “Spike Lee is synonymous with thoughtful and provocative filmmaking and activism in Hollywood which has inspired a generation of filmmakers, uplifted actors and expanded the field to include many more African Americans in key roles behind the lens. He fully embodies the spirit behind this award and Chrysler is delighted to celebrate his commitment and passion.”

In conjunction with award, the Chrysler Foundation donated $25,000 to Lee’s alma mater, Morehouse College, in the realm of Sports Journalism.
