FREE MOVIE NIGHTS AT THE MUSEUM presents: STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON
In 1987, five friends from Compton, CA, poured their rage and frustration over living in America’s most dangerous city, into some of the most influential lyrics and beats in rap history. This film depicts these friends’ real-life struggles against social, cultural, and political forces that tried to keep them down. Their passion and their voices went on to inspire millions of fans, and raised awareness about issues such as urban poverty, institutional racism, and police brutality that are still very much alive today.
