To honor the memory of two unarmed men recently killed by the NYPD, a public reading of Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing is being held tonight, and actors Michael B. Jordan and John Turturro will be there.

According to Arts Beat, Blackout for Human Rights announced the details yesterday:

An acclaimed film from 1989 about simmering frustrations that build to a police killing of a black man in Brooklyn, “Do the Right Thing” starred Mr. Lee (who also directed) as Mookie, a low-key pizza delivery guy. Mr. Jordan will read the role of Mookie while Mr. Turturro will be Sal, the pizzeria owner who was played by Danny Aiello in the film. (Mr. Turturro played one of Sal’s sons in the movie.) The filmmakers Ryan Coogler (“Fruitvale Station”) and Shaka King (“Newlyweeds”) organized the reading; the event is being held in the memory of Eric Garner and Akai Gurley, two New Yorkers who died after confrontations with police. Tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis starting at 6 p.m., with one ticket provided per person.

The screening itself will be at 6:30 p.m., at 144 West 65th Street. Do The Right Thing turned 25 this year.

Jordan starred in Coogler's Fruitvale Station, as Oscar Grant, who was killed on New Year's Day 2009 in Oakland by a BART police officer; Grant, unarmed, was being detained by a police officer who then fatally shot him.

Eric Garner was killed in an NYPD chokehold on Staten Island in July while Akai Gurley was fatally shot while walking in a dark NYC Housing Authority building stairwell by an apparently nervous cop.
