Even Spike Lee doesn’t know what Spike Lee will talk about for the 2010 Tanner Lecture on Human Values, which annually invites luminaries. The content in America Through My Lens: The Evolving Nature of Race and Class in the Films of Spike Lee will be timely and subject to change depending on the week’s or month’s news, so the agenda for his Kingsbury Hall appearance is unplanned.

The 35 features and documentaries produced by Lee’s company, 40 Acres & A Mule Filmworks, have touched on class, gender, equality, corporate responsibility, disaster relief and more. Lee’s engaging voice forces his audience to hold up the mirror and examine their beliefs, while simultaneously holding a magnifying glass to such issues.

Spike Lee @ Kingsbury Hall, 1395 E. Presidents Circle, University of Utah, 801-581-7100, Sept. 14, 7 p.m., sold out. KingsburyHall.org.
