'Afro-Punk' screens at MoRUS Thursday night

Via the EVG inbox... this is happening Thursday evening...

Prior to its emergence as a global brand, Afro-Punk was a grassroots community of Black musicians, artists, skaters and activists existing within the punk rock scene as captured in the eponymous documentary shot and released by James Spooner in 2003.

As part of its Political Punk Exhibit, the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (MoRUS) will screen "Afro-Punk," the 66-minute film that inspired the AfroPunk festival, co-founded by Spooner and Matthew Morgan. Spooner will be in attendance to introduce the film and for a post-screening talk; all of which will take place on Thursday beginning at 8 p.m. Suggested donation is $5 per person.

MoRUS is located at 155 Avenue C between Ninth Street and 10th Street. Read more about the screening and the Museum's political punk exhibition here.
