• The Chicago Urban League Presents the Second Annual Black History Month Film Festival

    Established in 2012, the Chicago Urban League's Black History Month Film Festival is presented annually as a forum to engage our community in honoring the achievements of African Americans, examining current community challenges and exploring strategic solutions that can lead to an empowered future.

    In February 2013, the Chicago Urban League Black History Month Film Festival will again present a series of films intended to educate, empower and inspire Chicago's African American community. The films and conversations that follow the screenings will give audiences an opportunity to engage in meaningful dialogue on issues including gun violence, the effects of poverty, healthy eating, and the challenges of urban youth. Throughout each topic, our remarkable history will be highlighted as a tool for inspiration.
