(NCBRC), NBTF is the biennial event with a
purpose of bringing together black theatre
companies from around the world and
showcasing the genre to all audiences.
According to The New York Times, "The 1989
National Black Theatre Festival was one of
the most historic and culturally significant
events in the history of black theatre and
American theatre in general." Today the
festival draws more than 65,000 attendees
to Winston-Salem.
After the evening performances, the energy
spills into the downtown streets as festival
