Black Arts Festival Events ’22

BAF 2024:


About the theme:

Welcome to the annual Dr. Walter J. Leonard Black Arts Festival, where Afrofuturism takes center stage! Afrofuturism is more than just a theme; it’s a powerful movement weaving together elements of Black history, culture, and imagination into a tapestry of futuristic narratives. Through literature, music, art, and more, Afrofuturism explores themes of identity, agency, and freedom, envisioning liberated futures for Black lives. Our festival celebrates this rich tapestry, showcasing the creativity, resilience, and innovation within Black communities. Join us as we embark on a journey through time and space, where the past, present, and future converge in a celebration of Black excellence and imagination.
