Fulton County recognizes the importance of NBAF, the oldest multidisciplinary arts organization in the United States focused exclusively on the arts and on artists of African descent.
In 2008, the United States Congress honored NBAF as a “national treasure”, and in 2018 NBAF received the Governor’s Award for Arts and Humanities in Georgia.
Atlanta, GA (July 12, 2019) The National Black Arts Festival (NBAF) provides educational programs in music, dance, film, visual arts, theater and literary arts locally, nationally and internationally for diverse audiences.
Founded in 1987 by the Fulton County Arts Council, NBAF began as a one-week summer festival.
Today, President and CEO Vikki Millender-Morrow, along with the board, council, partnerships and donors, are working together to transform it into a premier year-round celebration of Black culture.
Back by popular demand, after sold out runs at the Apollo Theater and Kennedy Center in 2018, this live performance features a cast of actors who bring to life Coates’ words, along with a breathtaking, digital backdrop and music composed and performed live by Jason Moran (Selma, Netflix’s documentary 13th) and his trio, direction by Apollo Executive Producer, Kamilah Forbes (By The Way, Meet Vera Stark; NBC’s The Wiz).
The special presentation, originally developed and directed by Kamilah Forbes, Executive Producer of the Apollo Theater, and featuring original music composed by Mac Arthur “Genius” Jason Moran and performed live by his trio, had its world premiere at the Apollo in 2018, and will launch its national tour in Atlanta with other stops across the country to be announced.
Forbes will join the tour in Atlanta to discuss the continued significance of Between the World and Me and the cultural relevance of the production, the connection between the Apollo, widely considered the epicenter of Black culture, its hometown Harlem, and Atlanta.
