UIS Queer-Straight Alliance to host "Beyond Beats & Rhymes" Campaign

"HIP-HOP: Beyond Beats and Rhymes," a documentary by Byron Hurt, will be shown at 7 p.m. Thursday, November 29, in Brookens Auditorium. A panel discussion featuring UIS faculty and staff will immediately follow.

Hurt's film takes an in-depth look at issues of masculinity, sexism, consumerism, and homophobia in hip-hop culture and in the larger American society.

The event is presented by UIS' Queer-Straight Alliance in partnership with the Gender Public Advocacy Coalition. Read more>>
