Chance the Rapper's nonprofit, SocialWorks, continues to put on for the community in Chicago.

In December Google donated $1M to Chance's organization and now, right in time to kick off Black History Month, the rapper has announced a month-long film festival to celebrate Black excellence.

As announced on his social media, SocialWorks has organized a film festival taking place at the Studio Movie Grill in Chicago, during which a variety of culturally impactful films are being shown.

The festival is showcasing classic films such as Malcolm X, Shot in the Dark, Ali and The Wiz, among others. Additionally, the festival will also include a special showing of Black Panther once it hits theaters later this February. On top of all that, the price for each film showing is only $7.

Nice work, Chance.
