Bronzeville Week — the Milwaukee neighborhood’s annual celebration of African-American culture, commerce, arts, history, entertainment and more — kicks off this weekend.

Backed by King Drive, Bronzeville was a major economic and social hub for African Americans from the early 1900s through the 1960s, according to the city of Milwaukee website.

It is on its way again.

Earlier this year, the neighborhood was named to The New York Times annual list of 52 places to visit this year.

And what better time to visit than Bronzeville Week, which runs Saturday through August 13th?

From the Bronzeville Cultural and Arts Festival to the Bronzeville ArtWalk to the Afro-Caribbean Cultural Celebration, here’s what you need to know about the week’s worth of festivals. Most of this information was pulled from the festive schedule.
