The influential 90s R&B Trio SWV (Sisters With Voices) is set to headline the second Black Arts Fest MKE.

It's the second year for the festival that will take place Saturday, Aug. 3 from noon until midnight at the Summerfest Grounds.

The festival celebrates African and African-American culture.

SWV made their debut in 1992 with the chart-topping hits "Weak," "I'm So Into You," and "Right Here."

While the group disbanded in 1998, their hits continue to influence modern artists in the genre.

In recent years, SWV has reunited for performances. Most recently the group has been touring with Toni Braxton.
