English Professor Consults on Spike Lee Film

Posted on: May 9, 2019

Arthur Flowers, associate professor of English, is a consultant on the upcoming Spike Lee film, “Da 5 Bloods”—a Vietnam War veteran drama starring Chadwick Boseman (“Black Panther”). “It feels like we’re actually on the battleground together—me and my brothers in struggle, all for one and one for all,” writes Flowers from the set in Thailand. A Vietnam vet, Flowers also is working on a novel and a book of nonfiction.
