Monday, May 2, 2016 - 18:30

The AUP community is cordially invited to a screening of F. Gary Gray’s controversial 2015 film “Straight Outta Compton”

In 1988, a groundbreaking new group revolutionizes music and pop culture, changing and influencing hip-hop forever. N.W.A's first studio album, "Straight Outta Compton", stirs controversy with its brutally honest depiction of life in Southern Los Angeles. It has received critical acclaim for the attention it draws to racism, while at the same time harsh criticism from feminists for erasing and marginalizing black women.
