'Guilty Or Innocent Of Using The N Word?' is a new film premiering in London next month. The controversial documentary investigates questions around the N word that we often discuss among ourselves. The film breaks down the word chronologically from the history of the word (nigger) all the way up to Hip-Hop's influence on the acceptance and commercialization (nigga).
Starting with the origins of the word and its use, the film chronologically details its history, right up to its present use in hip hop music and culture. Guest appearances in the documentary include M1 of Dead Prez and CEO of Allhiphop.com, Grouchy Greg CEO of Allhiphop.com, up and coming rapper Marchitect plus many more.
The film was recently sponsored by the city of Wilmington (Delaware, USA) and was followed by a q&a panel- guests included Grouchy Greg, The Last Emperor and Wonderland Musiq. A similar format will be occurring at the UK screening- panelists confirmed so far include Dipset UK rappers, SAS, Paul H from UK magazine Hip Hop Connection, Matilda Egere Cooper- from B&S magazine and The Independent and Dr Lez Henry- an academic from Goldsmiths College, which is where the film will premiere on Wed 3rd May.
The documentary was shot around Harlem, NY, Philadelphia, PA and Wilmington, DE.
This is a free event, which is open to the public and will aim to promote positive hip-hop and education.
