The Terrace screens All Eyez on Me, the true story of the late (or, so they say) rapper Tupac Shakur, this Thurs. at 7 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. After the film, viewers will hear from a panel, presented by The Terrace, Black Collective (a Charleston-based news/entertainment platform), Monster Music, and local radio station, Star 99.7. You can buy tickets online.

The panel discussion following All Eyez on Me explores "artistry in the era of activism." In addition to his music career, Shakur was an activist, born to parents Afeni Shakur Davis (born Alice Williams) and Billy Garland, members of the Black Panthers. His social consciousness often came through in his songs, at least according to Billboard, which lists 10 times Shakur was "at his most woke."

This Thursday's panelists include Star 99.7's Sheila "Savannah" Johnson; hip-hop artist, Port Baby; rapper, singer-songwriter Dkay the Artist; and hip-hop and rap artist Mossy B 4 Prez.
