Come see Straight Outta Compton, the epic story of N.W.A.
The screening is FREE, but the idea is that you'll be inspired to donate the ticket price (or more!) to Human Solutions' programs that strengthen communities and prevent homelessness in East Portland and Gresham. See you there!

In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., Straight Outta Compton tells the astonishing story of how these youngsters revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.

Straight Outta Compton aims to cross cultures and sanctify the wisdom of the street-to make a universal underdog story. It succeeds on a visceral level.
