10F0LD Productions is presenting the Black Lesbian Archives Exhibit June 14-July 13 at Affinity Community Services, 2850 S. Wabash, #108.

The exhibit is being put together by Kru, an archivist, DJ and CEO of 10F0LD Productions. "The importance of exploring and preserving our history is more crucial than ever," said Kru.

"During this exhibit we explore Chicago's Black Lesbian history while discussing how we can collectively go about making our archival efforts more concrete. We embark on unifying and bridging the generational gap for the present-future," Kru said. Affinity Community Services, Windy City Times and the Gerber/Hart Library are providing the archival materials.

Opening night ( Thursday, June 14 ) will feature Yvonne Welbon of Sisters in the Life: A History of African-American Lesbian Media Making. The free and all-inclusive event will take place 6-8:30 p.m.; visit Eventbrite.com to RSVP. For more information, emial 10F0Ld411@gmail.com .

Other events include a short-film screening Monday, June 18, 6-8 p.m., with talks featuring Kasey White and Couqie Hughes ( screenings of The Homestretch and My Mama Said Yo Mama's A Dyke ); W.O.M.B. Poetry on Thursday, June 21, 7-9 p.m.; and a panel discussion Tuesday, July 3, 6-8 p.m. The closing exhibit reception will be July 13, 6-8 p.m.
