WHAT IS THE ATLANTA BLACK THEATRE FESTIVAL?
A diverse line-up of artists drawn from around the corner to around the globe. This annual event pays tribute to the most colorful tales of triumph and tragedy often with "laugh out loud" humor and salient humanity.
Although the ABTF is popularly known as the festival of "40 plays in 4 days", it's hardly enough time to preserve and share the fantastic stories of the African diaspora.
In just six short years the ABTF, has presented over 200 live events while providing opportunities for over 1,300 of the most prolific literary, visual and performing artists of our time.
Whether you're a fan of Tyler Perry, August Wilson or just a lover of world class black art, the amazing shows along with the international vendors' market and the authentic celebration of community will make this popular fall festival one of your favorite things to do in Atlanta!
*40 plays in 4 days includes special events.
