  • Literature to Performing Arts: National Black Arts Festival Has It All

    The National Black Arts Festival is a summer festival that's among the highlights of Atlanta's annual calendar of events. Throughout the year, the much-acclaimed Atlanta Black Arts Festival showcases performing arts, literature and visual arts produced by creative artists of African descent.

    The NBAF produces year-round educational programming, while collaborating with partners in and around the Atlanta area. Recently recognized as an innovator in the arts, the NBAF was awarded a $1 million, five-year restricted grant to participate in Leading for the Future. This recognition alone proves how special the National Black Arts Festival in Atlanta truly is.
