The Black Academy of Arts and Letters, Inc., is a multi-discipline arts institution whose mission is to create and enhance an awareness and understanding of artistic, cultural and aesthetic differences utilizing the framework of African, African American and Caribbean Arts and Letters.

Our purpose is to promote, cultivate, foster, preserve and perpetuate the African, African American and Caribbean Arts and letters in the Fine, Literary, Visual, Performing and Cinematic Arts.

Support us by helping meet the enormous cost of providing our programs and services to audiences across the nation. Support education programs, protect the legacy of African American arts, and provide the Academy with additional funding in areas where it is needed most.
