Beats and Barak
There are some movies I can watch over and over again, never get tired of and constantly find something new and interesting within when I watch. The Matrix, Enter the Dragon, City of God, and Byron Hurt's documentary Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes all make the list. If you haven't seen Hurt's film that probes the heart and soul of HipHop's masculinity, leave work on Thursday, stop and grab yourself something to eat and head over to Hurt's alma mater, Northeastern University for:
Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes and Barack & Curtis
Join Byron Hurt and the brothers of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated as he shows and discusses Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes and Barack & Curtis: Manhood, Power, & Respect at Northeastern University.
Thursday, February 5, 2009
6:30-9:30PM @ 325 Shillman Hall Northeastern University
I haven't seen Barak & Curtis (part of The Masculinity Project, a short doc examining the contrasting styles of manhood exhibited by Barack Obama and Rapper/Mogul Curtis Jackson, aka 50 Cent. Supported by NBPC, ITVS, and the Ford Foundation), but judging from Hurt's other work, it should be a hit.
