Lee’s film titled “2 Fists Up” is planned for digital release May 31. ESPN says the film examines how the Black Lives Matter Movement sparked activism at the University of Missouri and the rest of the U.S.

Lee also was on campus Monday to interview subjects for the film and record footage of the Concerned Student 1950 group as it protested at multiple spots on campus.
