Mark the birth of the pop music king in Brooklyn style, with a Bed Stuy block party.
Spike Lee, the director of classic Brooklyn films “Do the Right Thing” and “Crooklyn,” not to mention borough brand entrepreneur, is hosting his eighth annual Brooklyn Loves Michael Jackson block party on August 25. The party, which has drawn large crowds in past years, honors the music of Jackson, who was born on August 29, 1958 and passed away in 2009.
Lee posted a save the date announcement for the event yesterday on Instagram and Facebook. Full details are to come, but the free public event will take place in Bed Stuy on Saturday, August 25, from noon to 7 p.m. on Stuyvesant Avenue between Lexington Avenue and Quincy Street.
