Continuing their themed mission of celebrating black cult classic films, Los Angles party staple, Brunch 2 Bomb reminded their attendees just how prolific Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing continues to be. With over 1,400 attendees Brunch 2 Bomb etched its mark in the black excellence celebration that is BET Awards weekend.

It seemed fitting that the weekend’s celebration was for Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing, a film about race and empowerment, Brunch 2 Bomb served as an extension of those themes. Celebrating the film’s 20th anniversary, Brunch 2 Bomb Co-founders, Adrienne Reed, and Benjamin Walker and staff turned the Fields of LA into the ultimate party atmosphere. Joining in the festivities were HBO’s Insecure heartthrob, Kendrick Sampson, and #BlackLivesMatter Co-Founder, Patrisse Cullors. Patrisse used the opportunity to let her hair down and celebrate her birthday. Happy birthday Patrisse!
