Hip-hop thrives in the city.
The Brooks Museum’s Soul on Film series concludes on Thursday with B-boys at the Brooks, a celebration of street culture in the Rotunda, with breakdancing demonstrations, a cash bar, and music from Hot 107.1’s DJ Superman, followed by an 8 pm screening of Style Wars, one of the first hip-hop focused documentaries.
The fun starts at 6 pm. Admission is $8; $6 for Brooks & Stax Museum Members
About Style Wars:
This indispensible document of the early 1980s New York City scene captures the MCs, DJs, B-boys, and graffiti writers who turned a city in crisis into their own public playground, battleground, and spectacular artistic canvas.
The film will be introduced by Levon Williams, curator of collections/registrar at the Stax Museum of American Soul Music. Filmmaker Henry Chalfant (co-author of Subway Art and Spraycan Art) will lead a presentation about the filmmaking process and host a post-screening audience Q&A. Co-presented by the Stax Museum of American Soul Music.
Directors: Henry Chalfant and Tony Silver
