Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes

When: Tue., Oct. 27, 7 p.m. 2009

Most of the time, mainstream hip-hop has coarsely limited subject matter: money, violence, drugs, women. Ever wonder why? Tonight, Byron Hurt will screen his award-winning documentary Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes, which attempts to answer this question. Via hip-hop, Hurt's film examines problems of masculinity, sexism and homophobia in mainstream American culture and what role the music industry plays in perpetuating them. The free show starts at 7 in CC's Armstrong Theatre (14 E. Cache la Poudre St., bhurt.com) and will be followed by an open discussion with the filmmaker. — John Knight
