Event Details

Brown Sugar is a 2002 American romantic comedy film written by Michael Elliott and Rick Famuyiwa, directed by Famuyiwa, and starring Taye Diggs and Sanaa Lathan. The film is a story of a lifelong friends, A&R Andre and Editor-in-Chief Sidney. The two can attribute their friendship and the launch of their careers to a single, seminal childhood moment – the day they discovered hip hop on a New York street corner. Now some 15 years later, as they lay down the tracks toward their futures, hip hop isn't the only thing that keeps them coming back to that moment on the corner.
