Milwaukee Film’s premiere program Black Lens returns with another engaging series for Black History Month.

Black Lens debuts a host of new community events and movies throughout February showcasing the beauty and intricacies of African American society and culture.

The events kick off on Feb. 1 and span the gamut of networking, exploring Afrofuturism, music and Black love.

“Groove Theory”, the Black Lens music series, also features a reunion of the popular local band Growing Nation, and the Valentine’s Day-themed, “Black Love Through A Black Lens” hosted by St. Louis-based intimacy specialist Afrosexology.

In a new series, “In Retrospect”, music journalist Miles Marshall Lewis will take guests on a deep dive of Grammy-nominated rapper Kendrick Lamar.

If the movie screenings are more your vibe, tickets are $12 for general admission and $9 for members.

Films include “Fire Music”, a documentary highlighting the free-jazz movement; the 1980’s cult classic “The Last Dragon”; “Juneteenth: Faith & Freedom” and “Loudmouth, an unprecedented look into the life and work of longtime civil rights activist Reverend Al Sharpton.

All showings are at the Oriental Theater.
