National Black Arts Festival
The National Black Arts Festival (NBAF) is one of the premier national and international presenters of the culture, music and art of people of African descent. Their mission is to "engage, cultivate and educate diverse audiences about the arts and culture of the African Diaspora and provide opportunities for artistic and creative expression."
The NBAF summer festival is now in full swing and will last through July 17, 2011, with many exhibits and shows running throughout the rest of the summer. Various events will be held during this time throughout the city of Atlanta celebrating visual art, music, dance, theatre and film produced by artists of African heritage. You can even celebrate with the library by checking out these exhibits and workshops at the Auburn Avenue Research Library.
