Wichita’s 46th Black Arts Festival will be all about community

Carl Stovall knows how important the Black Arts Festival is to the community. Founded in 1968 during the civil rights movement, its original mission was to give black families a respite from unrest both locally and nationally by offering an outlet for enjoying art and entertainment in a safe and supportive environment. The event has always been held, despite financial struggles in recent years. This year’s festival promises new activities and a greater opportunity for dialogue about several salient issues.
