A two-day event intended to celebrate Black and African American music and culture is coming back to Fayetteville this winter.

The Arkansas Black Film and Music Expo, organized by local non-profit Music Moves, is set for Feb. 9-10 at the Fayetteville Town Center.

In addition to the music, the festival will include a Film Expo on Feb. 9 organized in partnership with Black-owned film company, DAYVISION. The film expo will include a keynote by Daphne Maxwell Reed (who played Aunt Vivian in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air), along with film screenings, panel discussions, and more.

Weekend passes to both days of festivities are $50 through Jan. 14, and go up to $75 after that. Tickets to the film expo are also $50. Afternoon passes to the music expo are $10, and tickets to the evening session are $30.
