Black History Month Film Screening Cultural Event

In recognition of Black History Month 2018, the Office of Multicultural Student Services and the FLITE Diversity Committee will be hosting a screening of a thought-provoking and historical film, “Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap,” on Tuesday, February 6th from 11:00am and 1:30pm in FLITE 135. “Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap” is a feature length performance documentary about the runaway juggernaut that is Rap music. At the wheel of this unstoppable beast is the film’s director and interviewer Ice-T. Taking us on a deeply personal journey Ice-T uncovers how this music of the street has grown to dominate the world. Along the way Ice-T meets a whole spectrum of Hip Hop talent, from founders, to new faces, to the global superstars like Eminem, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and Kanye West. He exposes the roots and history of Rap and then, through meeting many of its most famous protagonists, studies the living mechanism of the music to reveal ‘The Art of Rap.’ This extraordinary film features unique performances from the entire cast, without resorting to archive material, to build a fresh and surprising take on the phenomenon that is Rap.
