Stew, the star and co-writer of the hit Broadway musical Passing Strange, screens Spike Lee’s film version of the stage production and discusses his collaboration with Lee as part of the new film screening series Film Blackness, organized by visiting associate professor Michael Gillespie (City College of New York) and made possible by the John Sacret Young Fund for visiting filmmakers. The film follows a young African-American musician known as “the Youth” who is thrust into the world of rock ‘n’ roll on a journey to self-discovery.
