Lees films have sparked critical inquiries into the nature of genres, the role of the auteur, and question of whether there is, in fact, a black cinematic aesthetic. According to some critics, Lees films challenge viewers to engage intellectually with a cinematic text, to revel in and deconstruct the complexities of each films polyphonic visual and aural fields.Gathered in this anthology are critical writings on Spike Lees films by leading scholars in the fields of Cinema Studies and African American Studies. In sixteen new and reprinted essays, the contributors to The Spike Lee Reader consider the nexus of race, gender, and sexuality in Lees work, and in doing so encourage readers to further explore the cultural, social, and political implications of Lees films as well as his entire body of work.Contributors include: Christine Acham, Toni Cade Bambara, Mark D.

Cunningham, Anna Everett, Daniel Flory, Krin Gabbard, David A. Gerstner, Ed Guerrero, Keith M. Harris, bell hooks, Wahneema Lubiano, James C. McKelly, Tavia Nyongo, Beretta E. Smith-Shomade, Michele Wallace, S. Craig Watkins, and the editor.
