MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- For years, African American leaders in Milwaukee have been working to recapture and build upon the spirit of Bronzeville, the cultural, entertainment and business district from years gone by.

Part of that effort is Bronzeville Week in August, and on Wednesday we got a preview of this year's celebration.

The 11th annual Bronzeville Week runs from this Saturday, Aug. 6, to Aug. 13 ,and it covers a wide area of African American history, art, commerce and entertainment. 

There's a long list of events coming up, everything from a 5K run/walk to a community mural project, to concerts, a trivia event, even a back-to-school block party.

"Eight days, from Saturday to Saturday, that helps to explore, helps to attract and helps to uplift the great things that are already happening in Bronzeville -- the great people, the great businesses and the experience that people can have, along with showing what's possible," said Alderwoman Milele Coggs. 

Many of the events are located along or near Martin Luther King Drive. 

You can find the schedule below.
