The Movie That Made Me: A South Side Organizer On ‘Do The Right Thing’

What is the one movie “made” you? 

In Morning Shift’s summer series “The Movie That Made Me,” a notable Chicagoan comes on and talks about the film that had the biggest impact on their life. 

So far we’ve heard from writers and comedians, radio personalities and movie nerds about their favorite films that stuck with them. And their choices have run the gamut, from “The Color Purple” to “The Wizard of Oz” to “Fatal Attraction.” 

In our latest installment, Morning Shift sits down with Rami Nashashibi. He’s the executive director of the Inner City Muslim Action Network, or IMAN, which aims to address poverty and systemic injustice on the city’s South Side. And he shares the movie that made him: Spike Lee’s 1989 film “Do The Right Thing.”
