There are many ways to observe Black History Month– from supporting Black-owned businesses to donating to anti-racism charities. One organization will help you do that through art. 

Milwaukee Film is dedicating its entire month of programming to films and events that celebrate Black History Month.

Throughout February, the nonprofit’s Black Lens program is spotlighting the work of African American filmmakers. While the movies explore fiction and documentary stories that are rooted in the Black community, they’re relevant to a variety of audiences. 

Here’s a lineup of what you can see where…
