From The Huffington Post

Break out the champagne, the 2010 National Black Arts Festival (NBAF) begins now. Happening in Atlanta from July 14th through the 18th, the event bills itself is one of the America’s “pre-eminent presenters of the art and culture of the African Diaspora.” With a beautiful new website that was funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the organization has re-branded itself this year, sporting a green-friendly attitude, which incorporates solar and biodiesel driven stages and a recycling program for its outdoor venues.

Like the Harlem Renaissance of the 1930’s and 40’s which embraced every aspect of the arts, beyond the bounds of visual art, the NBAF presents literary, theatre and music productions, as well as photography, painting and sculpture. And located in Atlanta’s Centennial Park, which was originally built when the city hosted the 1996 Summer Olympics, the festival includes a Children’s Educational Village and an International Marketplace for vendors, artists and galleries.
