THIS EVENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FOR WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 2011 AT 7PM.

In celebration of Black History Month, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum will present a special film series, “Double Exposure: African American Music on Film,” which will highlight the central role of African Americans in the history of rock and roll.

Krush Groove (1985)

Runtime: 97 min

Sheila E., Run-DMC, the Fat Boys and Kurtis Blow star in this feature-film romp through New York’s teen subculture. They’re talented street-savvy urbanites on the move after hooking up with a new record label. But with their success come ego trips and greed that threaten to destroy everything they’ve worked for. A fresh 23-song soundtrack vibrantly powers this rags-to-riches story, directed by Michael Schultz (Car Wash, Greased Lightning). So get ready for Krush Groove the movie (which marked Blair Underwood’s feature-film debut)—and get down with its music. Additional performers include New Edition and tracks from Chaka Khan, the Beastie Boys, and the Gap Band.

This event is free with a reservation.  Please email education@rockhall.org or call the Education Department at 216.515.8426.
