Documentary for Hip-Hop Artist M.I.A.

2845 W 7th St

On February 23rd 2019, CARECEN will screen "Matangi, Maya, M.I.A.”, a documentary that dives deep beyond the cult of personality of the Hip-Hop artist M.I.A. Witness her rise as a young Tamil woman, activist, refugee, and entertainer whose intellect and identity permeates every artistic act that she is involved in. Her struggles with the systemic racism and sexism of an entertainment industry that commodifies black/brown female bodies for the purpose of media consumption. Never one to take the easy route, M.I.A. uses her voice and platform to shed light on these issues, despite any negative criticism. This film is a moving piece that never reduces Maya to a concept or idea, but shows her in all of her complexity and depth by focusing on an unapologetically powerful artist: M.I.A. Following the screening there will be a Panel of CARECEN staff, organizers, artists and community activists discussing the parallels of Central Americans and the Tamil community. The significant role of art and activism in shaping a conscious identity and the growing need for solidarity among refugees. All proceeds from the event will fund CARECEN's efforts to support the Central American migrants at the Southern border. Pre-sale tickets: $8.00 At the Door: $10.00 Doors open at 5PM, film begins at 6PM followed by panel discussion.

KRS-One — "Leveraging Influence: Black Celebrity and Activism" (Free Event)

California African American Museum

[Free Event] Hip-hop legend KRS-One and history curator Tyree Boyd-Pates examine how black celebrity and activism have been instrumental in leveraging influence. A recipient of BET’s “I am Hip Hop” Lifetime Achievement Award, KRS-One co-founded the Stop the Violence Movement (1989), which united hip-hop’s major artistic voices of the time against urban violence and raised more than $600,000 for the National Urban League’s literacy programs. As the loudest voice for hip-hop as a global culture capable of affecting social advancement, KRS-One is a longtime activist against police brutality, the over-commercialization of rap music, and other platforms that impact urban communities. Presented in conjunction with Los Angeles Freedom Rally, 1963.
