The National Black Arts Festival will host two events at the annual Atlanta Jazz Festival in an effort to unify fans of various ages and art disciplines. Jazz and hip-hop make for a rich collaboration at Talkin’ All That Jazz: The Jazz and Hip-Hop Fusion Concert at City Winery on May 23. And on May 25–26, the organization hosts Art in the Park, a pop-up outdoor gallery in Piedmont Park during the jazz fest.
The NBAF, a nonprofit organization that supports art and artists of African descent through education and entertainment, has supported jazz and its role as a social conduit for more than three decades. The organization is seeking ways to transcend the generational divide in jazz music.
