About Us:

The NBAF (National Black Arts Festival) is one of the premier national and international presenters of the art, music and culture of people of African descent. The mission of the NBAF 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 celebrates the arts in three ways:

1. Education and Public programs

2. Year-round programming

3. A summer festival

NBAF produces year-round education programming, as well as events presented in collaboration with our partners, in addition to the annual summer festival for which the organization is named. Recognized as an innovator in the arts, NBAF was awarded a $1 million, 5-year restricted grant to participate in Leading for the Future (LFF), a program  funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and administered by the Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF).
