Thur., Oct. 4 – Arts at The Rives is teaming up with Books and Crannies, Natalie Hodge, and Chad Martin to explore the worlds of hip-hop and poetry.

When struggling rapper Coco (Azealia Banks) enrolls in a poetry class, she thinks her rhymes will impress her teacher, Professor Dixon (Jill Scott). Instead, Dixon challenges Coco to seek real meaning in her lyrics, setting her on a journey of discovery that takes her through rap clubs and poetry slams, leading her to find her true voice – and true love – in this uplifting movie costarring Lucien Laviscount.

Join us at before the movie for a spoken word/poetry event in the lower theatre co-hosted by Natalie Hodge and Chad Martin as we explore the marriage between hip-hop and poetry.
