Special Conversation
An Evening with Speech of Arrested Development (Free Event, Students Only)
180 min.
The UNT Black Student Union hosts the Denton Black Film Festival for an Evening with Speech of Arrested Development as he shares and discusses one of his latest projects, “The N Factory." It’s a powerful 3 part mini-docu series, exposing a 400 year White Supremacist marketing campaign that purposely perverted the Black diaspora’s image worldwide! Powerful and pernicious, see how this thorough assault continues even today. The screening takes place from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. NO FREE PARKING AVAILABLE. Parking is available at the Highland Street Garage (cash and credit cards accepted) and the Union Circle Garage (using the Parkmobile app; no cash accepted at this garage).

Speech is an award winning artist, consistently pushing the artistic and social envelope. He, is the leader of the 2x Grammy Award winning hip-hop collective, Arrested Development. He and the group have been a ground-breaking force in Hip-hop culture since 91. Their debut album, “3 Years, 5 Months and 2 Days in the Life of...” (EMI), sold over 4 million albums, earned them two Grammy awards for Best New Artist and Best Rap Single (Tennessee), 2 MTV awards, (People Everyday), a Soul Train Music Award, and the coveted NAACP Image Award. Rolling Stone magazine named them Band of The Year (92), while VH-1 named them one of the greatest Hip-hop artists of all time! The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame even named the AD smash “Tennessee” one of the 500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll. Speech has continued to be a trailblazer with the group and as a solo artist sharing stages with Nelson Mandela, Minister Louis Farrakhan, Hilary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama, he is the categorical definition of legendary.
