31 years ago today, Spike Lee's 'Do the Right Thing' was released in movie theaters.
 
Last year at the films 30th anniversary- Richard Brody writes in his New Yorker article, The Enduring Urgency of Spike Lee's 'Do the Right thing' at Thirty  "to watch it now is to see it in the context not just of a long and horrific history of acts of racist violence against black Americans but also of the police brutality that, thirty years after the film’s release, continues."

Lee dedicated the film to the families of Eleanor Bumpurs, Michael Griffith, Arthur Miller, Edmund Perry, Yvonne Smallwood, and Michael Stewart- six black people, five of whom were killed by police officers.

Inspired by the LGBTQ marches taking place in the early 70s in many major us cities, the first pride rally takes place in London. The date was choosen deliberately to mark the three-year anniversary of the stonewall riots and the fight for LGBTQ rights quickly became an international movement.

7/3/1985

'Back to the Future' was released in theaters.
Great Scott!

'Text me when you get home' by Kayleen Schaefer is a great reminder and celebration of the power of female friendship.

Guaranteed to leave you a little teary and a lot grateful for the women in your life.
