ICEBERG SLIM: PORTRAIT OF A PIMP, documents the storied and tumultuous life of Chicago pimp Robert Beck, a.k.a. "Iceberg Slim", who reinvented himself from hustler to author of 7 groundbreaking books, selling over six million copies.These books were the birth of "street literature", exploring the world of the ghetto in gritty and poetic detail and made him a cultural icon.

The film, produced by rap legend Ice-T and directed by Jorge Hinojosa, premiered in late 2012 at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival, and features interviews with Iceberg Slim, Chris Rock, Henry Rollins, Ice-T, Katt Williams, Bill Duke, Snoop Dogg, and Quincy Jones.

    A BIG, BIG, BIG thank you and shout out to all who attended and supported the "Iceberg Slim" screening last night! We sold out the theater and the night wouldn't have been a success without you! I especially enjoyed the Q&A and discussion afterwards, as you all gave very insightful feedback on the film, the "industry", the challenges of the Black male in society, and most importantly, Mr. Iceberg Slim himself...

    Hope to see you all at the Summer Film Series!

    Questions: I see 28 RSVPS here w/ 45 tix left on Eventbrite. Are people able to pay once there as long as they RSVP? Secondly, is the invite exclusive to this group only? I'd like to suggest this to my group of black execs and career professionals, but want to make sure to follow protocol.
