It’s also Black Music Month! From the African American Museum in Philadelphia, here’s a great-sounding event, featuring Philly’s own Lady B.

In honor of Black Music Month, ReelBlack partners with the African American Museum in Philadelphia to premiere two short films celebrating Philadelphia’s hip-hop history, and the contributions of rap pioneer and radio personality Lady B.

Both projects, Bring the Beat Back and A Salute to Lady B, feature footage that has largely gone unseen, until now. This screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Lady B, MC Breeze, and Funk Wizard Snow alongside filmmakers Mike D. and Tito Irizarry. Don’t wait, grab your tickets now! ​

ReelBlack & AAMP Present: Bring the Beat Back | A Salute to Lady B
Friday, June 15, 6:30 p.m.
