Riverfront Hip-Hop Festival featuring Rubble Kings Screening and Rah Digga at

the Orange Sticks in Riverfront Park

 

July 8 - 9th

 
Newark Riverfront Revival hosts the 2nd Annual Riverfront Hip-Hop Festival with this year's theme of "Hip-Hop for Political, Social, and Environmental Justice." 

Friday, July 8th, 8pm - Screening of Rubble Kings, a film by Shan Nicholson, that looks at the climate that gave birth to the music and culture of hip-hop, as a movement of political, social, and environmental justice, sponsored by Newark Office of Film + TV.

 

 


"From 1968 to 1975, gangs ruled New York City. Beyond the idealistic hopes of the civil rights movement lay a unfocused rage. Neither law enforcement nor social agency could end the escalating bloodshed. Peace came only through the most unlikely and courageous of events that would change the world for generations to come by giving birth to hip-hop culture. Rubble Kings chronicles life during this era of gang rule, tells the story of how a few extraordinary, forgotten people did the impossible, and how their actions impacted New York City and the world over."

Saturday, July 9th, 3pm-8pm, Riverfront Hip-Hop Day at the Orange Sticks
