“Black August: A Hip-Hop Benefit Concert” x dream hampton

Esteemed writer dream hampton has directed “Black August: A Hip-Hop Benefit Concert.” The documentary will be premiering this Thursday (August 26) at Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theatre. Using archival footage and interviews with artists and members of the Malcolm X Grassroots movement, it chronicles the creation, development and movement behind the annual Black August Hip-Hop Project, which “strives to promote human rights though supporting and influencing the global development of Hip Hop culture.” Their most well known event is the Black August Benefit Concert which has now been going strong for over a decade.

After the screening their will be a panel discussion with hampton, Lumumba Bandele (co-founder of Black August), Professor Marc Lamont Hill (Columbia University), former political prisoner Dhoruba Bin Wahaad, Talib Kweli and M1 of dead prez, who is hosting. Co-presented by Lincoln Center and the ImageNation Cinema Foundation, tickets can be purchased here. Definitely should be some nourishing food for thought to counter the saccharine Hip-Hop you get bombarded with daily.
