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.

Younger audiences would identify him as the voice of the loveable robot Baymax from Disney’s “Big Hero 6.” Yet Scott is not in Atlanta this weekend promoting any scripted work — he’s returning to one of his first loves: improv comedy.

Flying Carpet Theatre Director Adam Koplan returned to "City Lights" to help further demystify the invisible — and fluid — volume of music.

When pro athletes retire from, say, basketball, they usually try to go on to work in a sports-related field, like coaching or commentary.

NBA All-Star Joe Barry Carroll took a different path, following his love of fine art and writing. In recent years, he’s created his own works, mostly paintings. Several of those paintings appear with personal reflections in his 2013 memoir, “Growing Up: In Words and Images.”
