Black Thought, lead singer and emcee of the iconic hip-hop band The Roots, will host a special film screening of The Last Dragon at Nitehawk Cinema (136 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn, NY) on Tuesday, April 26 at 7pm. The screening is the first in an expected series of events highlighting classic “throwback” movies with memorable soundtracks. Tuesday’s screening will be followed by Black Thought leading a first-time-ever conversation with the film’s star, Taimak and with El DeBarge, singer of the soundtrack’s biggest hit, “Rhythm of the Night.”
The events will also benefit Black Thought’s charity, GrassROOTS Community Foundation, which provides health and wellness programs for impoverished women and girls.

For fans unable to attend, the evening will also be a digital event, with live streaming exclusively on blackthought.com, a new editorial platform for thoughtful and insightful conversation on all things culture — ranging from entertainment to the sociopolitical. The website will officially launch in Summer 2016 featuring original content, new music from Black Thought, and more.
Online viewers will be able to join in by watching the film at home and live tweeting along with the theater audience. All participants will also have a chance to win autographed merchandise from Black Thought, Taimak and El DeBarge.
