7:00pm Music:
DJ Laylo & Eli Efi (Hip Hop, Classics, and Soul)

8:30 pm Screening:
'Jamel Shabazz: Street Photographer'
(Dir. Charlie Ahearn, 2011, 74 min.)
In the infancy of hip-hop, Brooklyn-born photographer Jamel Shabazz documented the pioneers of music and style that would initiate an unstoppable worldwide phenomenon. Ahearn, director of the classic Wild Style, pays tribute to both Shabazz and those who defined hip-hop before it had a definition. More than just vintage shots of kids rocking Puma Suedes, Kangols, and pin-striped Jordaches in Times Square or all-city, Shabazz's photographs have hundreds of stories behind them, and Ahearn gives voice to these images with dozens of interviews with Shabazz himself, graffiti pioneer and hip-hop historian Fred "Fab 5 Freddy" Brathwaite, legendary rapper KRS-One, Bobbito Garcia and more.
