Today marks the 20th anniversary of Spike Lee’s classic film Crooklyn.
In 1994, the “Carmichaels” became the fictional hip-hop family a generation of African-Americans would quote for years to come. Unlike other notable fictional black families like the Cosbys or the Winslows, this Brooklyn-based family was far from perfect.
Between fighting with the neighbors, chasing dying jazz careers, and battling cancer, the Carmichaels were undeniably relatable for the majority of black Americans. Starring Academy Award-nominated actress Alfre Woodard, Delroy Lindo, and charismatic child actress Zelda Harris, it was hard not to list Crooklyn as one of your favorite movies to watch in the ’90s.
So in honor of its 20th anniversary, we made an attempt to find out what the cast members are up to today. #ThankUsLater.
