#UPFRONT discusses 'Emmy Awards' + NBAF's Art of Giving Virtual Gala (AUDIO)

Check out this week's edition of UPFRONT Inside of Atlanta's Entertainment Industry. I'm discussing Emmy Award nominees plus NBAF's Art of Giving Virtual Benefit Gala. 

The best and brightest names in television will be honored this Sunday night during the 72nd Emmy Awards. A record-setting number of African American actors and creatives have been nominated and here to discuss a few of them is Edward Adams from the African American Film Critics Association (AAFCA). 

The National Black Arts (NBAF) presents the Art of Giving Virtual Benefit Gala on Saturday, September 26 at 6:30 p.m. This event will also coincide with their inauguaral Horizon Awards where emerging artists from music, film and art will be awarded for future projects. The discussion features NBAF Managing Director Stephanie Owens, Artistic Director Tiffany LaTrice, and Horizon Award Music Honoree Troop Brand.
