Every donation matters, no amount is too small.

Support NBAF and our artist community!


NBAF is a nonprofit organization with a 34-year history of excellent artistic and educational programming across music, dance, theater, film, visual and literary arts that has evolved from a seasonal festival to annual programming showcasing artists of African descent who create, innovate and produce extraordinary work.

Our mission is to expose, educate, engage, and entertain audiences as we present and support artists of African descent while broadening cultural experiences. 

We look forward to your financial support as we continue to purposefully and meaningfully celebrate black art that inspires us all.
