Chance the Rapper non-profit, Social Works, will start a film festival in honor of Black History Month.
The Grammy winner started Social Works as a way to empower the youth in his hometown of Chicago. The non-profit’s mission is to help the young people of Chicago “through the arts, education, and civic engagement while fostering leadership, accessibility, and positivity within the youth throughout Chicago.”
Ticket goers will only have to pay $7 per ticket to enjoy films such as “The Wiz” from Feb. 2-3, at the Studio Grill in Chicago. Every week will be met with a new showing, including: “Malcolm X,” “Shot in the Dark,” “Black Panther” and “Ali.”
Social Works, has held many events for the city of Chicago including nights at the Chicago Field Museum, an annual toy drive, meet-and-greets with Cramburger creator Cam Meredith and open mike nights.
