The annual National Black Arts Festival is months away, but it’s not clear if the organization will have an executive director in place. For the third time in four years, the organization is once again looking for leadership.
In May of 2009, WABE interviewed Neil Barclay. He had just been introduced as the new executive director of the National Black Arts Festival. Barclay was replacing longtime executive producer Stephanie Hughley.
He talked about the challenges of a large arts organization like NABF.
