his summer the National Black Arts Festival will celebrate its 20th anniversary by reecting on the past while looking toward the future. ˆIt's a milestone, a family reunion with an emphasis on civil rights and human rights,– said Stephanie Hughley, executive producer. ˆIn a time when so many arts organizations serving multicultural audiences have disappeared from the landscape, we can be proud of the fact that we're still here and stronger than ever.– In addition to an exciting lineup that includes concerts by Gladys Knight and Wynton Marsalis, the NBAF is featuring a multitude of arts and cultural events, including the NBAF Artists' Market at its new home at the Georgia World Congress Center; the NBAF Children's Education Village; Pan African Film Festival; Friday Author Pearl night jazz at the High Cleage will Museum; World Music lead intimate discussions Festival at Centennial with artists in Olympic Park; and the the Creatively Ebb and Flow spoken Speaking word institute. series. The NBAF also is partnering with the Woodruff Arts Center and the Savannah College of Art and Design-Atlanta to focus on the legacy of the civil rights movement, Hughley said. Throughout the year, The Atlanta Dialogue: Artists and the Civil Rights Continuum will feature performances and community discussions exploring Atlanta's role in the movement. The High Museum of Art exhibit, ˆRoad to Freedom: Photographs of the Civil Rights Movement, 1956-1968,– will continue beyond the festival until Oct. 12. During the festival, Princeton professor Dr. Cornel West, trumpet virtuoso Marsalis and photographer Carrie Mae Weems will discuss artists and the civil rights continuum.

ˆWe're also going to be partnering with Macy's to do a hip-hop fashion show with Russell Simmons,– Hughley said. ˆI'm excited to be doing something centered around the fashion industry that's such a big part of the hip-hop generation.– Looking back on the beginning of NBAF 20 years ago, Hughley said she is overwhelmed by how far the festival has come. ˆI remember the Œrst festival was supposed to start with a parade down Peachtree. I was worried that nobody would come, but at the end, there was this sea of people,– she said. ˆAnd I remember everyone who came to the festival over the years: Cicely Tyson, Harry Belafonte, Maya Angelou, Sonia Sanchez and Nikki Giovanni. And, of course, Pearl Cleage, one of my best friends.– Despite offering such an impressive array of artists, musicians and writers over the years, the NBAF struggled for a time. When Hughley took over in 1999, the biennial festival was several hundred thousand dollars in debt. She soon garnered more corporate support and made the event an annual one. This year, she added the Woodruff Arts Center and the Savannah College of Art as partners. ˆNow different counties ¨ Cobb and Gwinnett and Clayton ¨ are talking about bringing part of the festival to their counties, and not doing it just during the 10-day celebration but throughout the year. We need to Œgure out how to partner more with the local arts communities.– While Hughley is grateful to corporate sponsors, she credits Fulton County government for its key support. ˆThe festival was created with the help of Fulton County Commissioner Michael Lomax. There would be no black arts festival without Fulton County,– she said. ˆWhat I see the festival doing now is opening its arms to the entire world, not only in our community, but around the world. We're saying, `Come and celebrate the contributions we made to world culture and the inuences we've all had on one another.' –

Atlanta native savors role in `Color Purple'

school, he won a Glee Club scholarship to Morehouse College, where he majored in Œnance.

Q: How does it feel to be coming back home? A: It is a blessing and I am excited to see my family and friends, including my 98year-old grandmother. It has been two years since I've been home. I miss the Southern hospitality, going to Hillside Chapel and Truth Center, hanging out in Buckhead. Q: What's it like to play the role of Harpo? A: It's terriŒc. It is an amazing show. You have to give it your all ¨ 110 percent. Playing Harpo is phenomenal because he is considered the Renaissance man, the new man. He breaks the cycle of [men] controlling, abusing women. He creates a new way of dealing with women.

Q: How did you transition from corporate America to the arts? A: I took my vacation from the bank to rehearse for ˆCotton Patch Gospel.– When I came back, I was told that we were being bought by another bank. That's when I knew what I was supposed to do. I knew it was my time to fully commit to being an artist, singer and actor. Q: Growing up, did you ever think you would be performing on Broadway? A: I grew up in a time when your parents said go to school, get a job and life would be Œne. I never thought about Broadway. I told my parents that the bank gave me a severance package. They never said don't do it. They said, ˆGo for it. We believe in you. Trust your talents that God has given you.– I never imagined all of this. ¨ Rori Francis Blakeney

community, has been the chief architect behind the innovative project. ˆIt was almost self-ordained,– she said. ˆIn order for the theater to survive, we must nurture new playwrights. We must produce the future August Wilson or Lorraine Hansberry. The theater falls and rises with the quality of work that is produced.– The free readings will be July 26 at the Alliance Theatre at 2, 4 and 6 p.m. The festival has partnered with The Humane Festival and the Walker Arts Center to commission ˆThe Breaks,– a play written by San Francisco-based artist Marc Bamuthi Joseph, a graduate of Morehouse College. The piece, a multimedia journey through verse, contemporary dance and video, explores transnationalism and globalization in relationship to hip-hop culture. Although

When Leatrice Ellzy, manager of artistic programming and festival production for the National Black Arts Festival, asks, ˆWhere are the emerging black playwrights?– it's not a rhetorical question. Instead, it is the driving force behind a new project that will be unveiled during the festival's 20th anniversary celebration this year. Discovery: A New Play Development Project solicits new works from promising playwrights. Plays selected for the project will receive public readings, with some being funneled into development. ˆWe are really excited to participate in the process of theater, creation and putting new works in the world,– Ellzy said. ˆ[The festival] was the place presenters came to in the past; we really want to get back to being that place,– she said. For its debut, Discovery selected two pieces written by Shontina Vernon Clark, a graduate of Clark Atlanta University and the University of Washington at Seattle. The plays, described as despairing, heartbreaking and funny, deal with women Œnding their sexual selves, but from different perspectives. ˆPsychology of Chromosome X– is a series of vignettes about African-American women's self-discovery, while ˆA Lovely Malfunction– is about a married professor who suddenly asks questions about self, such as ˆAm I happy?– ˆAm I fulŒlled?– and ˆAm I repressed?– ˆShontina is extremely gifted: She sings, performs and is multilingual,– said Andrea Frye, a theater consultant for the NBAF. ˆWe want to read controversial new works and support playwrights who have promise. And Shontina meets the criteria.– In many ways, Frye, a mainstay in the Atlanta arts

Stu James' journey from southwest Atlanta to the big stage as Harpo in the touring production of ˆThe Color Purple– has had some twists and turns, including a stint in corporate America as a banker. But he never stopped following his dream of becoming a performing artist. He's appeared in productions locally, including the Alliance Theatre's ˆCotton Patch Gospel– as well as on Broadway (ˆRent– and ˆAin't Misbehavin' –). His small-screen work includes appearances on ˆGeneral Hospital– and ˆAll My Children.– He's also working on his debut album, ˆLove Is,– and a one-man-show called ˆSon of the South.– James' talent seems endless, and his former classmates at Benjamin E. Mays High School might agree: They voted him ˆmost talented.– After high

Joseph will be part of the creative talent at this year's festival, his commissioned play will be performed at the 2009 festival. Joseph and a team of creative artists will conduct an all-day writing, movement and performance workshop, Ebb and Flow: Spoken Word Institute, for 13- to 18-year-olds on July 26 at the Auburn Avenue Research Library. While the festival is launching these new programs, it continues its long-standing partnership with local theaters to provide support for productions including: ˆThe Amen Corner,– July 13-Aug. 3, Alliance Theatre ˆThe Color Purple,– July 15-Aug. 3, Fox Theatre ˆHallelujah Street Blues,– July 11 Ž Aug. 24, Horizon Theatre ˆGees Bend,– July 16-27, Balzer Theater at Herren's ˆI Have A Dream Collision Project,– July 18-19, Alliance Theatre

`Requiem': The moment past meets present By Don O'Briant For National Black Arts Festival

in re-enacting pivotal historical moments through the use of props, costumes and set designs. ˆRecreated vignettes include the assassination of and mourning for Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy and Benazir Bhutto; an uprising; a procession of Buddhist monks; Morehouse College steppers; a classroom of young children sporting black berets; abstract clips of Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton's campaigns for the U.S. Democratic presidential nomination; and surreal dreamscapes of a woman standing alone in the snow, along with a series of images that vacillate from terrifying to tender,– Ferrell said. Weems has described her exhibition as a way of using the act of performance to experience and connect the past to the present. ˆBy inhabiting the moment, we live the experience; we stand in the shoes of others and come to know Œrst-hand what is often only imagined, lost, forgotten.– Weems, who lives and works in New York City, earned a bachelor's degree from the California Institute of the Arts and a master's degree in Œne arts from the University of California, San Diego. Her work has been exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts Hous-

The diverse visual arts exhibits at the National Black Arts Festival will be a feast for the eyes, but the exhibition not to be missed is Carrie Mae Weems' multimedia creation, ˆConstructing History: A Requiem to Mark the Moment.– A joint project of the NBAF and the Savannah College of Art and Design, the exhibit combines video, photography, music and poetry to reect on the events affecting human rights since Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination in 1968. The NBAF introduced Weems to SCAD in 2007 in hopes of forming a partnership to exhibit her new work, said Leatrice Ellzy, NBAF programming director. ˆWe thought Carrie was the perfect artist for SCAD,– Ellzy said. So did SCAD, who hired Weems to teach a course at the Atlanta campus based on ˆConstructing History.– ˆThe course allowed students in fashion, set design, photography, painting and other disciplines to work with her in creating this project,– said Laurie Ann Ferrell, executive director of exhibitions for SCAD and co-curator of ˆConstructing History.– Ferrell explained that Weems drew on archival Œlms and media and directed students and other volunteers
