Since 1988, Atlanta has hosted the National Black Arts Festival – a celebration of art and artists of African descent in dance, film, music, theater and more. Earlier this year, the NBAF named Vikki Millender-Morrow as its new president and CEO.

Millender-Morrow joined “City Lights” host Lois Reitzes in the studio for an interview on her vision for the future of the NBAF, as well as this year’s programming celebrating world music.
