Science, Industry, Streets

Chicagoist loves the Museum of Science and Industry, what with the submarine and the coalmine and all, and now that the MSI is branching out, we’re down with that too. Tonight, the museum hosts a reception and screening of Russell Simmons’s American Truth Series presentation of F.E.D.S., a documentary featuring stories from the hip-hop magazine of the same name (which stands for “Finally Every Dimension of the Streets”). New Def Filmmaker Kwame Amoaku examines pit-bull training and fighting, gets a who’s who of South Central and Compton’s Bloods and Crips, interviews a Harlem kingpin, and chronicles the rise of the “unofficial street bible” F.E.D.S. magazine. Reception at 6:30, screening at 8, followed by a Q&A with Amoaku.
