NBAF's 30th Anniversary

"Experience Black Art"

Your generous support has made the National Black Arts Festival the premier US arts organization celebrating the work of artists of African descent – artists who have shaped our global culture and given us works of art that move us and inspire our children.

Our annual festivals, world-class performances, exhibitions and commissioned works bring extraordinary experiences to thousands of people every year. Our education and mentoring programs open doors for young people, uplift emerging artists and sustain the careers of working artists.

We invite you to support NBAF in celebration of our 30th Anniversary...

The arts unlock our full human potential and give us tools for living and bring joy, creativity and inspiration…….

  • Our open-air arts festivals present the visual arts, dance, and music to families.
  • Film screenings take them around the world to explore different cultures.
  • Gallery events directly connect them with visual artists and their work.
  • Visual arts and dance education in low-income neighborhood schools unlock talent and shape futures. Move/ Dance!
