The Festival Of The New Black Imagination is a gathering taking place in New York City on October 15th to discuss the Black creative mind. Festival founder Rob Fields, has put together a line-up of some of the most important Black creatives of the 20th and 21st century including Greg Tate, Nona Hendryx, Wangechi Mutu, Vernon Reid, Tamar- Kali and many others. Because NBIF is not a mainstream co-opted get-together of the usual safe suspects the big sponsors are not involved. You can click on Fields’ video and hear about the festival directly from him and make a donation if you like. If you can’t contribute money and you’re in the city give your support by attending.
