Stories From The Culture.
The Harlem based Hip Hop Film Festival (HHFF) returns for its fourth season, honoring the legacy and social impact of John Singleton.
On July 19th, the festival partnered with NYC PARKS for its signature festival event #WeWatch Under the Stars.
This year, the Hip Hop Film Festival is hosted a community screening of “Boyz n the Hood” in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park (Long Meadow).
Participants enjoyed sunny weather, good food and a dope 90's retro set provided by DJ WIZ - Kid & Play's Legendary DJ that combined music and film.
A special thank you to Letitia Guillory and the amazing folks over at NYC Parks!
